Cincinnati. Feb. 12.— Scott Jack.'?on'.>< 
writtt-n .^^tatement to his attorney lia.s 
been given to the public. It undertake.s 
to tell chronologically his conneotion 
with tile case beginning with Monday 
of the week of the murder. That day he 
says he received a i>o.stal card from 
Will T. Wood stating that Pearl Avould 
arrive in Cincinnati that night. He and 
AVjiHing went to the two railway sta- 
tions, but both missed her. Not having 
money he Ijorrowed $2 of Walling— of 
which he paid back $1.7.j the next nigtit. 
Tuesday mornig he received a note 
from Pearl, at the college, and he and 
Walling went t) the Indiana house. He 
.saw her. Ijut Wailii»g ili<l not. 

It wa.s arranged that Walling should 
get a room without telling Jackson 
where it was and i>erform the oper- 
ation. Walling not having found a 
iMom. Bryan went to Heider's for 
KU|)per «nd t<j the Indiana house for the 
night. Wednesday he does not say 
where Pearl was, except that he told 
her to meet Walling at Fourth and 
Race at 10 o'clock. Walling left him to 
mec't lier and Jackson saw him no more 
until Thursday afternA)on ail the cul- 
legf. To his <iue«tion alioiu the new.s 
Walling answered: "Everything is all 
right. She is well." 

Jackson was at the college unrtll 9:30. 
At 9:.W Walling came in and got some 
things from the closet, took the grip 
and went out. Friday morning Jackson 
awoke and found Walling in bed. and 
they went to the lecture together. That 
day Jackson had his heard shaved off 
at the barber's suggestion. Walling was 
out all the afternoon, but came in in 
the evening and played a game of 
cards. After '.♦ o'clock. Walling took 
Pearl Bryan's grip, put on his hat and 
coat and went out. He did not i-eturn 
until after ."J:,"?© a. m. •for at that time," 
says Jackson, "I awoke and found he 
was nmt in. so 1 put out the gas and 
went 10 sle('V>." 

Saturday morning he found Walling 
in tied. He then tells of their going to 
the college on St^turday and In the 
afternoon reading of the matter in the 
pai<t rs. When he asked Walling if that 
was his case his face turned re<l and 
then i>ale, but he did not answer. 
"When I asked him what he did with 
it. Walling simply .said: I threw it 
overboard.' " Jack.son th-n tells of 
their return to their room and of their 
plan to get rid of Pearl's clothes. H.- 
admits that he threw a bundle into a 
sewer and threw some things into the 
Ohio river. 


Irish Member is Dissatisfied 
With Many Things. 

Lv)ndon, Fi b. 12.— In '^lic housi- ()f com- 
mons today the dplxite on the .iddies« In 
K'ply to -ihc queen's speech was? resimii'vl. 
John Dillon, member for Rust Mayo, 
in:i-P.inulIitc. a.iid he would be sur- 
prLsed if the begjr.irly characu-r of the 
Kfennees to Ireland in the speech did 
not m<H'f firmly fix in the minds of Irish- 
men the conviction that nothing i-ould l>e 
obtained from England except by violent 
ag'itaM.m. Continuing, Mr. Dillon con- 
trasted the troatiment of Dr. Jame.son with 
tht treatment of Irish prisoners, and siiid 
lie would oppos? the expendi- 
.uies proposed for the navy unless par: 
of :he surplus was devoted to Ireland. 

Mr. Dillon also announced an amend- 
ment to tht address, censuring the gov- 
ernment for not proiwsing self-govern- 
ment for Ireland. They weiv taunted, 
Mr. Dillon continued, by the gijvernment 
with having lost control of the Irish 
niation:iMsts in America. He rogrette.i 
this of control and the withholding 
f the support they had received there- 
fiom for m.iiiy years. i)U; no English 
s;ates'man, he asserted, who wa.= anxious 
to solve the Irish question would rejoice 
that the Irish in America had lost faith 
;ii constitutional agitation. 

Not long ago, Mr. Dillon further 
stated, there w^as a great deal of talk 
about British ships Wowing up American 
cities. Such language, he added, had 
happily ceased, and the English people 
had ieamtd that President Cleveland's 
message wa« not an electilon dodgt. but 
siH)ke the voice of the American nation, 
which was not aftuld to face the arbi- 
trament t>f war if the English refused 
.'.i'bitra,tion. But arbitmtion was to be 
iac*epted mvw, after America had been 
forc^i to threaten, and it would have been 
mjrr decent if Great Britain had ac- 
('oi>ted arWtration when Secretary OIney 
suggested it. 

He warned th<' government, in con- 
clusion, that the Irish par:y would resist 
to the utmii^t any idea of war between 
(Jrtat Britain and the United States.

Disgusting Practices of the 
Chinese Population. 

Victoria, B. C. Feb. 12.— Dreadful 
stories come from Yokohama of the 
treatment of Japanese by Formosa 
rebels, some corresiKjndents going so 
far as to say that the Chinese praotice 
cannibalism. Barly In January the 
i-ebels took possession of the village of 
Kelung. A detachment of Japanese was 
st-nt to attack the place, and jafter con- 
siderable opposition succeeded in driv- 
ing the rebels off and er-iering the vil- 
!ige, V hlch was afterward fired. The 
correspondent of the Japan Mail In the 
village say.s: "The troops were horri- 
fied at the ghastly sj)eetacle of nine- 
teen bodies of their countrymen be- 
headed and frightfully mangled. They 
were railway w<jrkmen who had met 
death at the hands of their friends. 

'Many of your icadeis may not be 
aware of the cannibalism that exists 
amftng the t?hiinese, although there is 
practically not a foreigner in Formosa 
but knows. of the eating of portions of 
the bodies of savages, or who are" un-

"The mutilate*! bodies of Japanese

Cleveland, Feb. 12. — The members of 
the Bar Iron association are again in 
secret session her itoday to further con- 
sider plans for advancing nriees on 
their product. While the members of 
the association have reaches! the <on- 
( lusirm, at previous meetings, that the 
qitixtatlons were too low, they have 
been unable heretofore to advanee sell- 
ing prices owing to the fnct that ab<iut 
1". per cent of the 'bar iron manufactur- 
ers of the country declined to join the 
organization or to be controlled by it 
in any way. 

It is now said that the minority 
manufacturers have been bixiught into 
the field, and that prices will as a result 
at imce be given an upward turn. 

Havana, Feb. 12.— A dlspaitch re- 
ceived here from Santa Clara, from 
tJen. Oliver, the Spanish comander, an- 
nounces a serious defeat of the insur- 
gents under Sanchez and Mirabel, two 
of the most important insurgent leail- 
ers outside of the province of Havana. 
The following details of the engage- 
ment have been received here. (Jen. 
Oliver, hearing that Sanchez and Mira- 
bel, at tthe head of a numerous force of 
insurgents, were moving on Cama- 
juani, ordered Col. Lopez, at (the head 
of soa cavalry and infantry to leave 
Remedios, northeast of Camajuani, 
where the trvjoi)s -were in garrison, and 
to engage the enemy. 

The trops left Remedios nt 7 o'clock 
in the morning, supposedly on Mon- 
day, and arrived at Camajuani the 
Hame niglit. The troops we-re aroused 
at an early hour the next morning and 
left Camajuani going in the direction of 
Palo Prito. where the advance guard of 
the insurgents were stationed. The lat- 
ter opened fire upon the troops as soon 
as the soldiers were well within langc . 
For some time the Spanianls did not 
reply until they got in better shoiding 
distance. When the Spanish column 
wivs well in hand and in l>attle form. 
Col. Lopez ordered the attack eom- 

This was done with effect, a sharfi 
and well-directed tire being kept up by 
the troops until the advance guard of 
the insurgents retreated uix)n its m:Hi!i 
body after having replied vigorously. 
The Spaniards continued to advance 
over difficult ground, the insurgent 
shari)sho(.ters keeping up a harrassing 
fire as the retreat was made. But -when 
the troojis reached a large open space 
of territory, having high ground to the 
right and left front, the insurgents 
suddenly appeared in strong force to 
the right and left of the troops and an- 
other body of the enemy afterwards 
aseertaint.l to be a strong reinforce- 
ment o' Insurgents under Leoncio. 
Vidal and Betancourt. arrived upon 
Col. Lopez' forc«/ in the center. 

Col. Lopez wa/ thus in danger of be- 
ing surrounded by :i mmh Kui>t«rior and 
well-armed force of insurgents. To his 
right and on his left were the main 
borii' .s of the att.icking insurgenLs un- 
der Sanchez and Mirabel. They were 
composed of mounted and dismounted 
men. in about et|ual numbers. But the 
renter force of the insurgents was 
mainly infantry. I'nder thes<- circum- 
stances Col. Lopez ordered the tro<i)ps 
to form sfjuares. This was don<' with 
gr»v^t coolness undei- the flr" of the 
enemy, and eventually the insurgents 
charged upon the s(|uare from three 
sidis with maihettes, tlie re:u- of the 
Spanish column being somewhat pro- 
tected by a stone wall and natural de- 
fenses ill the shape of thick brushwood 
and a ravine difHcult to cross. 

Th ■ inwurgenrs charged with the 
grt'3' st caurag.', in spj:e of the fire of 
the tTooi>s, waving th^^ir mHohe;t"c in th.^

wih the .s:i'me gallantry. This time the 
insurg- nts reached almost up to the 
Spinish sqtr.ii'e, but oncv more they werr

Grant Atterbury Hanged By a 
Mob at Sullivan. 

Decatur, 111., Feb. 12.— (iraiit Atter- 
bury was lynched at Sullivan at 12:45 last 
night. Fifteen misktd mtn broke op- n 
Jie jail and hanged him in the court 
house YAVA. He died declaring that he 
was Innocvnt of the crime of f)Utr.iging 
his sistt-i-in-law, Mrs. Roxy Atterbury. 

Tliose in the mob were fully armed. 
-uiJ .sevoral carried sledgt hammers. 
Thev ma e Uttle attempt at concealment, 
but went dilnf?<*tly aibout their work. Just 
l)efore mSidnlght they approached the Jail 
where Atterbury haj been confined for 
thv List ten days, charged with the 
double crim.? of muii\lering his fath<T and 
of a-ssjultJng the wife of his ijirothir. 
The leaders demanied the surrender of 
.\ttcrbury, an 1 the sheriff refused. H.' 
was reinforced by a single- dejiuty. As 
soon as his refusal had bt*en communi- 
tal d to the crowd a rush was made for 
the iron door.-'. An immens-;' croT^-d 
g.iihere.I rapidly, but no on- interfered 
witli the work (jf the lynchers. 

The sheriff st<x)d before the door and 
wanted tht raiders to desist. He fired 
liis revolver and waK immediately die- 
armed. Half a dozen blows with sledges 
tojk down the door.-, and then the men 
marched upstairs yelling ihfir commands 
and threats aginst any interference. At- 
tiriniry's cell was in the upper tier. 
The railing iiarty knew his txact cell and 
the slidge haimmer Iwigade was in- 
s;antly pHoted then. Half a dozt-n blows 
sufficed to break down the portal. 

Atterbury f(;iight like a demon, but 
was f(n-c^d by numbers down the staiii-s 
and thu^ seized and t>ound. He was 
taken to the court yarl. two blocks from 
the jail, wheri. a frantic multitude greeted 
his amval with a mar of curses and the 
( ry of "hang htm! ha:ig him I" Tht- man 
fought as he was hustled along, and at 
times phadvd wiih his c;iplcrs. "I am 
innocent." he shouited, over and over 
.igain. "Thank Grod you are hanging an 
innvxvnt man I" he moaned, as they 
halted under one of the trcres in the court yard and bound a rope aix)Ut his 
r;-.*ck. . 

No a.ttention wias paitd to bis protesta- 
tions («• his pleas.- "Tlie end of the rope 
was i ovtr a limb of a tree. A hun- 
dred hands grasped for it. A dozen 
seizcvi it and th.' rope slid oven* tht ice 
(werrd \:ir.\>. and the man's u'lterancv 
was choked with the tightening of the 
lo »i>. The roijie was wound about the 
tnnik of the trcv and the mob stood 
back and watched thv final writhing of 
a man whom every one in Sullivan be- 
lieved guilty of two heinous crimes.

are willing to admit. For the lai>ds which 
the railroad company is entitled to in 
lieu of portions cf its srant iii this and 
other states, it has received gover imerit 
scrip, transf rrable at will. This scrli:. 
can be laid on any vacant government

t-' the ex^k -'irs c>n th? American side, 
as showing the favorable geological con-

In an interview a f w days ago with a 
g?".tleman r. ireyentina: li^aster.i irvcs:-

of the Little Forks river for sev. ral 
years, he l^^formed mo that 'explorations 
are rendered scinewhat diftlcult -^-wi/ig 
to the distrarce cf the ledge from the 
su-fac'"". In most places the ledge is over- 
laid with frv:>m thirty to 100 f?et of clay 
ca.-^cd with eighteen inches of rich 
black loam. Aside fr . m its mineral and 
timber :souix;es. the valley is destined 
t • bee ;me one of the mo.-*t Tos-erous 
agricultural i>'jrtions of Minnesvta. In 
S'jvcral places, however, there are out-

A e. expert stas sent to examine th

he expressed his epic ion that the tw^ • 
were practically identical. The coal is 
suitable for coking purposes, which is 
a : Im .(.-rtant consideratirn in v:l w of 
its -J oximity t. • the greatest iron de- 
posits on the continent. The G'-eat 
Northe r. had lX. lore.s in the field ie 
thi- field in the summer of 1894. and is 
said to have received a favorable -.pir-

A Tough Stranger Who iVIur-

San Francisco, Fob. 12. — The police 
are inclined to believe that there is a 
stranger in this city whose mania is to 
equal, or .possibly eclipse, the record of 

London's notorious Jack the Ripper, 
who within the course of a year or two 
murdered imany fallen women. It see<ms 
as though such Wcre :he cuse. for 
within the past few days a young girl 
on Morton street hosa been s:ranglei to 
death, by fan unknown assassin, and sev- 
eral other Iwotmen in the same vicinity 
have been beaten, stabbed and strangled. 
In €ach of the Latter cases, the assailan: 
escaped wichtiut leaving a trace by which 
he could be detected. 

The night ^prior to the murder of "Litdc 
May Sm4th," a man bearing the appear- 
ance of a thug entered 'the ro^nn of a 
youns? girl, wiio had assumed the na,n-.o 
of Lulu Taber. on Morton stre;:. After 
■inquiring as : » ihe ainiounr. of money the 
girl had, and recei\iing a reply fa\\)ral>le 
to hjm, he 'oecame exceedingly rough, 
tearing the girl's clothes from her person 
in an endeavor, it is presumed, to fob 
her. The girl orde-red him ou; into iihe 
sneet. but he refused to go and ag'ain 
asaaileJ her, but her cries 'and threats 
to call the police attracted the attention 
of the girl^ in rooms adjoining hers and 
he ma'de a hasty exi:.

Bradbury's Quest For Treas- 
ures of Montezuma. 

Los Angeles, Cal., Feb. 12.— Col. John 

Bradbury, who is at present in Mexico. 

has Written to some friend in this city 

ou:!ining his plans for exploring Tiburan 

island, situated in the Gulf of California. 

Tht (ad\'icesisitiate that he has purchased 
the 'schooner Lilly Light, and has armed 
her with a Maxim gun and a five-ineh 
rifle. From his mine in Mexico he h-s re- 
cruited 125 men. whx:) are experienced 
fighters and; accustomed tj Indian war- 
fare. The letrer further seated ithe real 
object »f the expedition. 

It seems that a well authenticated 
l.^gnd has i: that, when Mon.ezuma, em- 
peror of Mexic"o. saw tha: his dynasty 
was d<x»m6d. he determined to prevent 
the 'oloody handed Cortez from securing 
th:' treasures of the Inca.=. so he Sfnt ail 
his gold to Tiburan and had i: buried 
there in Ja "mountain icave. When those 
who had charge of this task had finished, 
he ha,d all of them "offered ui> in sacri- 
fices, and the secret was lost until, 
through a curious series of events, it(Was 
disclosed to Bradbury. 

New York, Feb. 12.— A special dis- 
patch to a local paper says the most' 
imr loitant announcement in the opening 
day's proceedings in parliament was 
made by L.'rd Salisbury r s .ecting the 
Venezu vlan affairs. This was an ex- 
plicit statement that direct negotiation,^ 
with Vcnezuol* would siv^on be resum' d 
and the great obstacle to a settle- 
ment of the question be removed there- 
by. If the Venezuelan passage in the 
queen's speech lacked deflniteneis thi? 
defi-ct was remeditd by the |..ime min- 
ister when he made this .'■atisfact^iy 
declaration which was rec.dvjd with as 
much enthusiasm as Is ever shjvvn in 
the hjuse » f l.>rds. 

Hon. A. J. Balfour la the house of com- 
mc-s also took p-ains to deny that there 
is the slightest intcpitlon to violate th ■ 
substance of the Monroe a:id re- 
affirmed his hope that some permatvjpt 
system of a:bitratlon of disput?s with 
America would be devised. All refer- 
ences made in either house to the Ven- 
ezuela affair were most conciliatory i-i 
t:ne. Lord R.>sebcry mentio.ud th • 
maxim gun ei-isode in British Guiana 
and Sir Ven>' i Harourt • x iressed .e- 
g.-et that the British case had not been 
^^ublished imr.? pr m->tly, but the op- 
position leadei-s made r.o attcmot to deal 
with the subject in a partisan s iirit. 

Ooinion in the lobbies was general that 
the Venezuelan qqestion had virtualiv 
been settled, all that r.mairid being "a 
matter of detail. The United States 
government by bringing n> piessu.e 
to bear upon th.' Caracas government 
had c-ened a way f:r a resumption of 
dip'!v)matic interc-mrse between Venez- 
uela and E igland ard als > has stioulat- 
'^d for an exprcssl.-n of rogr. t for the 
Uruan Incident. Whethe • the entire 
boundary dis; ute b? ..-vertually sub- 
mitted to arbit -ation ir s. ine comnro- be submitted f ■• the Sh jmbu gk 
line, might be left an open questio'^. but 
confidence was ex.r'.''^ d in the I djbies 
that some form of adjustment wiuld 
epeedily be effected, honorable a::d sat- 
isfactory to all larties. 

This method of settlom.-nt will Lave 
President Cleveland's commi.=sion high 
in the air. or at least -edueo the func- 
tions of the United States to those ; f a ) 
executive advis.jry b.-ard. But th- main 
American point will be gained— th.' set- 
tlement f>f a frontic:.- disr.ute of long 
standing; to this will be added the* gen- 
'• al dlsrx-sition en the oa t of the Eng- 
lish nolitical leaders and thn press to 
treat the Monroe doctrine with m jre r •- 
apect than formerly, ard to advocate 
some scheme for arbit-ati -jg all disout •.-' 
or controversies which may .=ubscque-il- 
ly arise with the U Mtod Stato.s. Whil. 
this view may be unduly sanguin • it is 
evident from thr. to-e in th.« debates in 
the two h' u-ses that a long si vr. has been 
taken in the direction of perfect ooace

Interesting Test of Rontgen's 
Rays in Chicago. 

Chicago. Fell. 12.— The first practical ex- 
IRriment in Chicago with Kontgens rays 
wa.s made yesterday afternoon by Elee- 
trieiaii Charles K. Serlbner and Dr. James 
K. Hiiry in the laboratory of the West*rn 
Electric eomiiany. Gasper aehmidt came 
to the office of the Western Electric com- 
pany eomi)lainiiig of a sore spot in the re- 
gion of the palm of the hand. He said 
lif had lieen shot in the hand two years 
ago, but was unable to locale the affeet- 
eil part. Accordingly Schmidt was eoii- 
ducie<l to the Kontgen cjuarters and after 
an hour's exiwsure to the cathode rays, 
the sen.satize<l plate ui>on which rested 
the afflicted member, was taken into the 
[(hotographie room. 

When develope<l the plate disclosed a 
most excellent likeness of the anatomy 
of the hand and also what appear€>d to be 
a buckshot snugly enseonsed between the 
metacari)al bones of the third and fourth 
lingers, about an inch and a half below 
the knuckle. A silver print will be inaile 
from the negative and the bnekshol will 
then be removed by Dr. Bury, using the 
photograph or sliadovvgraiih as a guide. 

Dr. Bury and Electrician Scribner are 
justly enthusiastic over the success and 
predict for the "X-rays'" a vast held of 
usefulne^is, esiieeially in the domain of 
medicine and surgery. The exiieriment 
will be repeateil today and new methods 
and impi-oved apparatus will be useil. The 
result obtained yesterday not oidy 
eclirises all i'ormer results obtained by 
these investigators but gives credentials 
to an ImprovtHl priK!(^s which is pi-obably 
original with the Chicago men. In tlii.'< 
experiment a lead diaphragm was used, 
in which the aperatiire admitting tlie 
cut Mode rays was increased from oiie- 
lialf an inch to an inch. 

In their investigations Messrs. SerJIiner 
and lUiry found that the <!erinaii K'lass 
of which the Crookes tube is eompose<l 
is almost oijanue to the cathode rays, 
while aliiminnm is translucent. Lead, 
however, is impervious t(> these rays. Ac- 
e'ordingl.v a leajlen diaiihr-anm was 
stretched betwien the cathode r-ays and 
the objei't shadowgraphed. for the |inr- 
pose of eolieeiitrating tlie I'ays anil seeut - 
ing more detined outliiws of the sensi- 
tized plate. (Ireal care wa-s taken y< ster- 
ilay to excluile white light from tin- lillle 
rooin in which the experiment was m;ide. 
A heavy dark cloth was thrown over the 

In the experiment the subject %vas made 
to i)laee his hand upon a piece of thin 
ear<lboard. The liand was, then secured 
to ihe card palm dowrivsard. with coli>re<l 
ribbons, which were covered with an ad- 
hesive- substance. "We used colored rib- 
l)on.<!,' said Air. Scribner, "siniiily a>5 an 
experiment, to see, if possible, how differ- 
ent colors woulfl affect the cathode rays." 
On the sensitized plate, strange to say. 
the fabric of tlif' ribl>on.s conld be detect- 
ed liy close otiservation. The hand being 
lirmly banded to the eardlioaiil. for the 
purpose of steadying It and tf> prevent 
moisture from being communicated to 
the plate, a yellow paper was iilaeed be- 
tween the cardbo«r<l and the plate. The 
cathode rays were then turned on, about 
fifteen inches from the hand, and In Hfty- 
live minutes the plate was removed. 

Six volts of electricity were used in the 
epxerinient, being derived from a storage 
battery. l>nring Jhe test the patient felt 
no nnplejusant sunsations and the plate 
diselo."er no evidence of perspiration. The 
problem now resolv<?s itself upon the dis- 
covery of Improx ed means of eoneentrat- 
Ing the eathoile rnv's and of secui-ing 
translucent meilia thrtiMnh which to pass 
them. In this, <'olor, as well as substani-e, 
promises to pl;iy an important part. To- 
day .Messi-s. Scribner and Huiw will prob- 
ably try the leaii <llaphragiii. with such 
iniin'ov enienls ;is occur to them, based 
upon Ihe experiences of yesterday. "( Mie 
of the rc<'eni jniiHNn-eiiieiits in one niei h 
ods. ' said Mr. i^cfilmer last evciiiiiM. "con 
stst:; in placiiit; the (dijeet to !"■ pholo

dilHrult.v with that plan wa'. that perspi- 
ration, due either to hraf or nervousne-ss. 
blurred the plate. The lardboard. how-

Which May Give Cleveland 
Four-Cent Fares. 

Cleveland. Fel>. 1.'. — An evening paper 
says there is a well-delined Ijelief in linan- 
oial circb's that a gigantic ileal is brewing" 

in local street railway circles, apd that 
within six months the biggest street rail- 
way deal ever known in Ohio will havt 
tictn consummated in Cleveland. • 

The V>eliet" is that the two Eastern com- 
panies, which now control every street 
railway in this city, will V<e consolidated 
before summer ends, and that no less a 
person than Henry A. Everett, who for 
several months has been so valiantly light- 
ing to obtain a franchise for a system of 
elet-trlc roads in the city, on a 3-cent fare 
basis, as against .'» cents chargeil by the 
oM comi)a!!ies. will be one of the principal 
parties to the consolidation. 

Xo charge of bad faith is being made 
against Everett, but on the contrary he 
is given credit for ha\ing gone into his 
3-cent fare light with perfectly goo<l in- 
tentions. Wcil-|>osted men. however, have 
become convince*! that it will Vie a goo<l 
thing for his road to arbitrate. It is ile- 
c-lar€>fl with seemingly good autliorlty that 
Mark A. Hanna. president of the Cleve- 
land Fllectrie ancl Cable railroad, will be 
at the head of the new corporation and 
Exerett will l>e the vice president. It is 
alleged that the two roads will wh"n con- 
solidated give a 4-cent fare or six tickets 
for a quarter, and that universal trans- 
fers will be a feature.

The Shortest and Surest Way By Which it 
Can Be Done. 

I'liere are a thousand ways of light- 
ing a cold, but only one way lo effect a 
cure. " 

It was an ex|)er1enced medical man wtu) 
uttere*! this sage remark not long ago. 

■ Do you know," he continued, •that 
there is one way to lure colds and [ire- 
\cnt colds that can always' Ih> i^-lied uiion" 
It is a safe and rilial>le renndy. liut I 
alWH\s hate to recommend it because it 
is liable to lead to serious mistakes. I will 
tell you in confidence, however, that there 
is nothing better or safer to take in win- 
ter time than pure malt whisky The only 
trouble is that it must be absoiutely pure. 
The orvlinary whisky you get in saloons 
or t>arrooms will not do. That is where 
most !»eople get a wrong idea. They think 
that whisky is whisky, and that it is 
all the same. They forget that there is 
hardly a whisky free from adulteration. 
To do any good, whisky must be thor- 
oughly jnire. ajid it is oiUy such a whisky 
that 1 wouhl ever r»>oommend." 

The opinion al>ove given is interesting, 
but it is not new. Every experienced phy- 
sician knows that pure malt whisky is 
luiture's great remedy for stimulating th*> 
vital forces and building tu) the health. 
Hut such a whisky is not to be found 
exerywhere. There is, iti fact, onl.v one 
that has been proved to be medicinally 
pure and free from ailulteration. Tliis 
whisky is Duffy's pure malt, which is 
nniversall.v recognized as a wonderful 
health giver and restorative. Nothing has 
ever compared with it for toning up the 
digestive organs, en^ting a healthy ai>- 
petite, stirring uii the blood anil giving re- 
newed vigor to every part of the liotly. 
It will not only keei> off i-olds. grip and 
pneumonia, but it will ciu'e them. Kvt^ry 
person who takes it can go through the 
.severest winter without any fear of chills 
or pneumonia. '

Boston Beacon: Mark Twain, who re- •

told an interviewer at Winnipeg how he 
often (kzII a desire to "cut loose" from 
civilization, and to get away by himself 
where he could run and yell to his 
heart's content. In this connection there 
is a story about the humorist and Canon 
Kingsley. Walking along the streets on? 
day Mark felt the impulse to yell com- 
ing oit him with irresistible force, and 
said to Kingsley: 

"I want to yell; I must yell." 

The canon .said: "All right, yell away; 
I don"t mind." 

■■.\n] wi:h that."' said Mark. "I 
stepped back a few steps, and. throwing 
my arms! .fbovv- my head, let out a war 
whoop that could be heanl -for mih s, and 
in Itss time than you could count. Canon 
Kingsliy and myself were surrounded by 
a multitude of anxious citizens who 
wanted to know what was the matter. 
I told them nothing was the matter. I 
Just wanted to yell and had yelled."

Ne.xt to tho nam 
i Off ton ill fame and hon^r among the 
Ame.ica-i ptMol,' stands the name of 
Abraham Lincoln. This is the annivers- 
ary of his birthday and iti many states 
"f the I'aion the people have paused 
from their business to do honor to the 
niem >y of the nation's martyred he \>. 
It has been W..-11 sail} that the measure 
• -f Washington's fame is full, but for 
centuries to come, and over vast spaces 
of the gk-^be. the character of Abraham 
Lincoln will unfold, revealing more a.nd 
more the blended beauty, beneficence 
and power of that ma.-velous sagacity, 
ge.juine humility, u u\ffi:>cted simplicity 
ar^d abounding charity and humanity 
which made him the fit and favo-ed 
hero of the world's g/eatest n')litical 
drama; the liberator of a race, the sav- 
i >r of a nation, the martyred a;x)Stle of 
human fix^ed'^m. 

Th" character of the man is well re- 
vealed by an extract fr>m his famous 
oration at Gettysburg. He said: "Four 
score and seven years ago our fore- 
fathers brought forth oti this continent 
a new nation, conceived in liberty and 
dedicattnl to the proposition that all men 
are created equal. Now we are ctigage<i 
in a great civil war testing whether that 
nation, or any nation Si^> conceived and 
so dedicated, can long endure. We are 
met on a great battlefield of that war. 
We have ccme to dedicate a portio;i of 
that field as a final resting place for 
those who here gave their lives that 
that nation might live. It is altogethe: 
tilting and .roper that we should do thi;--. 
But i.i a larger sense, we cannot dedi- 
cate, we cannot conseci-ate, we cannot 
hall )W this ground. The brave men. liv- 
ing and dead, who struggled here have 
consecrated it far above our poor power 
to add or detract. The world will little 
njte nor lorsg remember what we say 
here, but it can never forget what they 
did here. It is for us, the living rather, 
to be dedicated here to the unfinished 
work which they who fought here have 
thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather 
f r us to be here dedicated to the great 
task remaining before us — that from 
these hono!-ed dead, we take increased 
devotion iu that cause for whieli .they 
gave the last full measure of devotion— 
that we here highly resolve that these 
dead shall not have died in vain, that 
this nation under God shall have a new 
birth of freedom, and that government 
of the ijcopile, 'by the people, for the peo- 
ple, shall not ;x?nsh from the earth." 


In the Canadian senate on Monday. 
Senator t^leinon advvjcated the construc- 
tion by Canada of the Ottawa and GiKir- 
gian bay canal. The project has be?n 
before Canada for forty years, the sen- 
ator said. I)ut had not been taken up for 
wa-it of finances. The routo has been 
surveyed and plans and sr)eciflcatlons 
prepared many yeai-s ago and a con- 
tract for 'a part of the work was let. The 
;iroject has again been taken up by lead- 
ing capitalists, bankers and b^^ards of 
trade. Last year a company was incor- 
porated and is now pushing the enter- 
prise ui'on the atitentloni of the govern- 
ment. It will connect Montreal with the 
no'-thern portion of Georgian bay and 
furnish a short and direct outlet for the 
cereals of the Northwest. 

A glance at the map will show that 
the construction of the pro-posed canal 
would give a very short route from Du- 
luth to the Atlantic .jcean. From Geor- 
gian bay, French river could be utilized 
to its connection with Lake Nipissing. 
and the latter body of water Is separ- 
ated fr»->m the Ottawa river by le.'s thai 
fifty miles of land through which it 
would be necessary to cut a canal. It Is 
said that there are no eiiifineering diffi- 
culties I'l the way of constructing such a 
canal and it could be built at a moder- 
ate cost. It would be necessary to 
deei-en French river and ateo the Ottawa 
river at some points, and then a ve:-y 
short route Avould be provided f;-om 
ports on Lake Superior aiul Michigan to 
.Montreal, from which polat there are no 
obstacles to the passage of vessels by 
way of the great St. I..awrence river to 
the Atlantic ocean.

It is Slated that an inves.igation has re- 
cently been made into the conditions of 
the G-arman and Belgtan iron and steol 
'industries, which conveys an important 
1 -sson to this country. Th; investigating 
committee consistaj of seven employes 
in the British iron industry, and seven 
refiT'. sen ta live workmen, acting together 
to find the reasons why the German and 
Belgian works are able to compete suc- 
cessfully with the British works in 
neutral markets. The report of the in- 
vestigation, rscently issued, declares that 
-while wages ;n Belgium are lower than 
in England, the difference in the case of 
Germany is umimportant. It states that 
the wages cost of production isi admit- 
tedly higher in England, but saya that 
til s is Inrgily accounted for by the 
differences in methols and machinery. 

The real advantage of the Belgian and 
German works, the rep<jrt says, lies in 
:rjinsTx)T'.ation charges. The conUnenttal 
charges are geneitally one-half the rates 
for long distances in England. The Bel- 
gians can send their iron 100 miles by 
ra/il, :o Antwerp, and thence to London 
by sat at less than is charged from Staf- 
Todshire to London. Not only have 
cuntint-ntal tmunufacturers cheaper trans- 
poi-lation from their works to the poini 
of export; they have also cheaper freights 
by st-.amer to foreign markets, even in- 
cluding the Brii^ish colonies. It should 
also b.j recognized that the continental 
waterways exereis-a a powerful influence 
not only by their transjxjrtation of raw 
materials for Iron manufature, but by 
their influence on railway rates. 

Comimenting upon the conclusions 
reached in the report of the Investigation, 
the P;tti*ijuig Dispatch says: "This de- 
claration by the highest practical autho- 
rity re-enfoi-ces wha.t the Dispatch has 
often said, that tiansijortation is the key 
to industrial success, especially in ih.-

Today's dispatches bring to Herald 
readers two practical tests of the ap- 
plication of the cathode rays lately dis- 
covered by Professor Rontgen in Ger- 
many. One of these experiments is now 
in progress at the Carnegie works, in 
Pittsburg, and will develop the power 
of the "X rays." as the scieritidts will 
probably designate them, to penetrate 
armor plates, steel eastings, etc.. for 
the purpose of discovering -whether any 
tlaws exist. 

The Chicago test has been already 
( arried to a wonderful and successful 
termination as an aid to practical sur- 
gery. A man suffering from a pain in the 
palm of his hand had the afflicted mem- 
ber exposed for fifty-five minutes to 
the cathode or "X rays." and. upon the 
development of the receiving plate, a 
buckshot was discovered eml>edded be- 
tween the metacarpal bones of the 
third and fourth fingers. The man -was 
injured by a discharge of biKkshot over 
two years ago, but the exact ijpot 
where the bullet was located was never 
known until yesterday's test was made. 
It will now be extracted without ditli- 

Edison, at iMenlo Park, is also ex- 
perimenting in photographing the 
brain of living human snbjt-cts, usinc: 
the same rays, but as yet has not met 
with any great success. The possibili- 
ties of Professor Ronitgen's discovery 
are already l>eginning to be felt as be- 
ing of practical benefit to mankind. 

Ex-State Senator John Day Smith, one 
of the leading Republicans of Minneapo- 
lis, made an able addr^^-ss on bimetallism 
bef re the gold and silver club of that 
city on M-nday evening. He made a 
strng argument in favor of free silver 
coinage. "Is it any wonde:-," he asketl. 
"that E igland demands the single gold 
standard '.' Her motives are not difflcult 
to fath<^m. P:ngland is today the heavi- 
est crcdito:- nation upon the earth. It 
is estimated that the rest of the world 
owes her $10,000,000,000. If this govern- 
ment was in that condition we might 
afford the otherwise expensive luxury 
of a gold unit of value. It is agreed u'>- 
on all sides that the free coinage of sil- 
ver would be an excellent thing if it 
could be T) x»ught about by international 
agreement. This concession ought to 
give ua the victory as it surely will la 

an example of the work that is done by 
European governments in the extension 
of water tran9rx>rtation. The canal is 
built by the Hungarian grovernment at a 
cost "f $9,000,000, to open the Danube for 
commercial pur-x>=es only. 

Senator Cull.m .says he will bo a can- 
didate for orepident, because he cannot 
resist the nressu.v brought to bea:- by 
his friends. This is an old excuse, but 
there is really no reason why. Senator 
Cullom should not aspire to the presi- 
dency. It Is an hones't ambition, and 
the Illinois senator is competent to fill 
the high office. » 

Mayor Pin gree, of Detn it. said in Chi- 
cago the other day that "neither the 
thief nor the receiver could obtain a 
title to a horse stok^n in the night; but 
he who grabs a franchise worth mil- 
Ii(ms in broad daylight and in collusion 
with the city autho ities has the title 
confirmed to him and his heirs and as- 
signs forever." If that were all of it, it 
might be endured, says the Pittsburg 
Dispatch, but when that wholesale 
seizure carries with it the i-ossessiong of 
the whole city goveriment as the fix- 
tures, messuages and tenements com- 
prised with the property, it is time for 
the people to inte.-pose a few mild ob- 

The Maryland sunreme court has made 
an important decision. It holds that the 
purchaser of a section in a sleeping car 
for a given trip has the right, if he 
leaves the train before reaching his des- 
tination, to transfer the use of his sec- 
tion to another first-class passenger for 
the balance of the trip for which it was 

The English jou nals are much sur- 
prised at the success of the United States 
loan. They entertained the idea that th.- 
country c-..uld not float a loan without 
Britisii aid, jusl as tln^y think that the 
other naJtIons could not remonetize sil- 
ver without England's assent. 

Miss Ma;-y Williams, of St. Louis, 
-jrayed on? week ago that the heavens 
would open and rain down whisky. But 
up to date the thirsty tramos in that 
section have waited in vain for the 
downpour, a-id they are getting ready 
to return to cheap beer. 

lown in his pocket and fished out the 
jhee-k and asksd for a ticket to St. Piaul 
ind return, he was given it vei-y 
iinumptly, together with $24 in cash. 
When the check came back there was a 
very "tired railroad man" in town, and 
you could not close an oyster any tighter

While the customer stodd ralking with 
the cigar dealer, his cigar had gone out, 
and it had become the foul smelling 
article tha^t a cigar wh'ich has t>een

"Whew I" said the customer, as he 
tixssed the half-burned stub away, "that 
is rank." 

"Let me tell you how to prevent that," 
.s^ild the cigar dealer. "It is an easy trick, 
and. I read it somewhere years ago, vet 
few people know it. When you lay ' a 
cigar down for a few mdnutes. blow all

Naturally those who are interested in 
the private hospitals in Duluih are op- 
past J to the idea of a c<junty hospital

would be the case, and it is not a.stonish-

gressional aspirations. Editor Eastman 
replies as follows: "For the information

The Best Remedy in the World— It 
Makes People Well. 

There is one true specific for diseases arising from impure b!c 
ited nervous system, and that is Paine's celery compound, so gent 

lood and a debih 
tated nervous system, and that is Paine's celery generally prescribed 
by physicians. It is probably the most remarkable remedy that the scientific 
research of this country has produced. I'rofessor Edward E. Phelps. M.U., LL D., 
of Dartmouth College, first prescribed what is now known the world over as Paine':> 
celery compound, a positive cure for dyspepsia, biliousness, liver complaint, neu- 
ralgia, rheumatism, all nervous diseases and kidney troubles. For the latter, 
Paine's celery compound has succeeded again and again where evtrythirg else 
has failed.

Letter on Dululh's Commer- 
cial Position and Resour- 
ces, Presentand Future. 

Capt. Trifjjis Presents Some 

Interesting Facts and 

Figures For 1895. 

Also Shows How Rockefeller 

Can Become GodFattier 

to Duluth. 

We wish to call attention to ilie 
steady and wonderful growth of Du- 
liUh during the last fifteen years: 
Uniteil States census. 1S80. 3470; stat.- 
census, ISSr.. H.S.'i.'i; United States cen- 


lS9t>, 32,72,'.; state census. 1893. 5!*,- 

Banner, Cobr.T. and "Vir*toria brands 
of pure Ceylon tea to be had at all the 
leading grocers. 

We believe our city Is destined to be 
one of the greatest commercial and 
manufacturing citlw? in America, and 
as a basis for this belief we present 
the following facts: Duluth is situate"! 
at the extreme western end of oiii 
chain of great lakes, which forms an 
arm of the Atlantic ocetm, extending 
IJiH) miles into the heart of the c(mtin- 
ent. where fifteen great steamship 
lin-:-s meet nine great railix>a<l lines. 
w liose traclvs cover a distance of 1S,(>0'I 
milts, traversing a country rich in ag- 
ri< ultural and i)astural capacity, with 
vast forests of i>ine and hardwoods, our 
immediate vicinity abounding in iron 
oic. the vastness and richness of which 
has astonished the world. Last yeai- we 
mined and marketed 4,(100,000 tons of 
Bessemer iron ore in this count> , (St. 
Louis county, Minn., of which Duluth 
is the county seat), which constitutes 
more than one-third of the Bessemer 
ore mined and converted into iron and 
steel in the United States in P^!t.">. 

We cut and marketed from the for- 
ests in our immediate vicinity last year 
3."0,000,000 feet of lumber. 

We received and marketed over •'•O.- 
000.000 bushels of wheat, over 4,000,000 
bushels of flaxseed and more than 5,- 
000.000 bushels of other grains — corn. 
r\i', barlev and oats. 

We manufactured over 3,000.000 bar- 
ic Is of Hour. 

We received and marketed over 3.- 
OOO.'M'O tons of coal. 

The 4,oi)0,ytM) tons of iron nre shipped 
t I furnaces I'^ast last year cost from so 
cents to $1,50 per ton lake freight, 
while it costs but :;0 cents and less t(> 
ship a ton of coal or coke from the 
same ports, viz: Buffalo, Erie and 
Cleveland to Duluth. This is .aused )>y 
our excessive shipments eastward "f 
.ur products, such as wheat, tloui, 
lumber and Iron ore. and returnin;.- 
light. Now. to make one ton of Bes- 
semer pig iif^n, two tons of this ore and 
only one ton of coke are required. 

In order to give you an idea of the 
tonnage handled by our lake vessels, 
we make this startling statement: The 
tonnage hauled to and from the i»orl 
of Duiuth by the lake vessels last year 
more than eciualled the entire foreign 
tonnage received at the iHirt of New 
York during the same length of time, 
or more than equalled the entire for- 
eign tonnage rt'coived at all of tlie 
United States i.orts on our Gulf coast 
from Key West. Fla,. to Galveston. 
Texas, including the i>ort of New Or- 
leans in 189.'). 

Wi' invite your investigation regard- 
ing these facts. 

The develeopment of the great West, 
directly tributary to Duluth and com- 
prising aiiout one-fourth of the terri- 
tory of the United States, means the 
building of many new cities and towns, 
the construction of thousands of miles 
'if raili'oads, and will furnish the fu- 
ture and natural market for everything 
that can and will )>e made from steel, 
iron, wood or tlbre in Duluth.

left standing in the United .St3.tes i.v

I'itles of America and to erect for him- 
self a monument in the hearts *>( the 
people of the entire .Vorthwest whicil 
v,ill endure through ages ytt to come. 

First: Put in at on* c an iron and steel 
plant with a <-apacUy to manufaoture 
1000 tons of merchantable steel per day 
with blast furnaces. Bessemer process, 
converter and rolling mill all combined 
so thait as the iron comes from the fur- 
nace while in a molten state, convert 
into Bessemer steel; then before it 
cools put it through th" rolling mill nnd 
mike into steel b'>«ins. steel rails, 
plates, bars, lods ami any such vari'-t- 
ies of meTchantai)le stetd as the markt t 
demands, all mi the same grounds and 
under one general management, there- 
b.v saving the time, labor, transport- 
ation and fuel required under the old 
process where the man of the i)last 
furnace made the j)ig iron, sold it to 
the man who melted it over and con- 
verted it into Itessemer steel Ingots, 
tiien came the man w ith the rolling mill 
who bouglit the steel ingots and by an- 
nther melting process made it linto 
marketable f(>rm, with at least twic<^ 
the expense of fu<d and labor In melt- 
ing over than it would have cost if 
under one management as above sug- 

Second: To extend at onie the con- 
struction of the Duluth. Mis.sabe & 
Northern I'.iilroad from Hilvbing or the 
most convenient point on the Mesaba 
range, less than 200 miles across North- 
ern Minnesota to the Red River valley, 
in the vicinity of (Ji-aiul Forks, N, D.. 
whii^h would devtiop a localit.v both 
beautiful and rich in resources, diver- 
silied in forests and farm lands, be- 
sides reaching directly tha't already de- 
veloped farmers' paradise — the famous 
hard wheat belt of North Dakota. 
Met for instance the Hines railroad or 
any of the already projected lines to 
Duluth by answering the prayers 
of the peorde of North Dakota and 
Northern Minesota by a direct rail- 
road line to Duluth. which would 
bring them at least I.'jO miles nearer to 
Duluth than by way of the Northern 
P:uific or Great Northern railroad, he 
could create for himself ti fortune and 
at the same time have the blessing of 
the entire population of Duluth and the 
Northwest. R<»spect fully,

th.'iv WIS something exhilaiating to him 
in sp akrng in such a cinirch. 1: is a 
gi.tnd thing to be in a <^'hurch which is 
not too pious to "be doing good. It is the 
rn1.-;.«':on \)f the ichurch to help humanity, 
.ind s«ion all will be doing thi: and none 
will live without it. "I had rather lec- 
ture ]n a church than preach in one." ht 
said. "The grrdt need of Christianity is 
to become practical." 

From a ti^dition related to him during 
his travels Iin India lie takes the title and 
idt'a <j^f his lecture. A gr<^at and good 
king in on-c- of the provinces died, lea\ - 
ing a magnificent d^aLice, with a throne 
of burnished gold and a silver crown, 
"Silver was wt>rth more than gold in 
ihose days, and some think it is now," 
sail Mr, Ci;vnwelJ. "For twelve yeai-s 
th, y sought for .i man worthy to weai 
lh?|9ilver|ci\iwn. -but 'in vain. The coun- 
try was rapidly going to ruin, when th> 
astrologers go: I'gether and a^ikei' ih<.- 
stars to find thv-m ihe anan, Thty were 
told to go forth, and .when they found 
tht; man whom th- animals followed, the 
sun >5t?rv-ed, the Aviater obfyd and man 
lived, him thty should make their king. 
They w.uidertti ov.-r the lands and found 
him not. until one night one of thdr 
found shelter at a poor huntsman's liut. 
During ;h'^ night lu^ was awak.?ned ii>\ 
a <grrat n<jise of howling wild animals. 
The huntsman oi>en?d the do:>r and T-t 
them in and fed them herbs, which were 
antidotes for the prison with which it 
proved they Wcre afflicted. In the morn- 
ing he kindled his fire by means of a 
crys:al. Avhkh focused the sun's rays. 
•Sutjscciuently Ik- calmed a turbulent 
spring by pouring oil upon the waters. 
The astrologer n^xt fjund in front of hi:? 
building a dam to store the waters of a 
river and them througout :ht- 
s-.-a.son to the people of a city below, and 
he found, too. |tha; the people of that ci:y 
loVcd and venerated him for i., Horr. 
then, said the astrologer, is the man t^j 
b' 'king, and he took him down to the 
city and made him king, and never was 
such prosperity known as under his 


In this fabulL)Us tale Mr, Conwell 
found u grand ksson. The great poin; 
which he impressed throughout his lec- 
ture was that it is th,- man who norices 
who is successful, "There are kings and 
queens everj-where, " said he. "Your 
politics are ruled by a half dozen man, 
and -if you are not in the ring you ought 
to be, I cnt-e heard a pijus old deacim 
h dd up his hands in horror and say thai 
he nrver\would [belong to the ring. Well. 
new, if he was half as smart as he is pious 
h' would have been there long ago. 
Engkanl is not ruled by Queen Victoria: 
she never interferes, and it would b- 
better if some of the old women did not 
interfere in our politics. (Laughter.* 
t>h, 1 am speaking metaphorically. 
((}i«at laughiriM Hut Victoria is 
good, kind old laily, and I hoi>f' she will 
live until her son is dead," 

He said that tiie development of tht 
;;nimflls h^afj been neglected. There is 
in ;he antmal a concent ratifm of fore- 
.md electric iK>wer which, if gathered t >- 
gether.- is greater than thitiin 'ht pist >n 
rod of an engine. There is in a hors< 
pawer enough, if rightly gathered and 
directel, ito run a 40-horse rxiwer engine, 
'.nd in riTan ti> run a 10-h«rse p)Wei 
•■ngine. "Find out how to accomplish it.' 
said he. "We can then have s.->me use 
for our loafers." 

"One man is more successful than an- 
ither because he has noticed somelhinj; 
the other has not seen. Man can leaiii 
from the an»mal«. A setting hcii knows 
inor.' about what life is than \the greates-, 
pbitlofKiphir th.1t ever .)ived. The doctors 
have discvivered great remedies througl: 
dogs. We, in all bur great intellectuably. 
don't know what to cat, but the i<>ws 
know that," Mr, •Conwell here enlarge!

fail in business 'because of pior cooking.

"It was .ill in whajt they ate. " said Mi.

the place of orators. There is 
something in 'the expitsswn of a man. in 
the, stami> of his fotit and the inflection of 
his voice which no cold type can express. 
Klocution is not oratory: it is th,i art of 
expivs.-=ion. oratory is the science of 
effectivr speech. " Mr. Conwell illus- 
trated :his in an :mu.sing wiy. "The 
great orator of the future will be a wo- 
man." he continued, "Her voice can br- 
hc>ard fai'cher. her inflections are more 
varying, and she has a greater sensitive- 
ness to the presence of others. 

"Great d-tJCtors, great teachers and 
great exijlorers are needed. The sik- 
ce.sisful men of the world have bern found 
not in th*' schools and universities, bu; in

Anderson's Grocery Festival. 

This is loo cold for our Opening Festival, so shall wait for a 
nice spring- day: the date will be announced a little later. 

In the itieantime wo are pleased to say to the people of Dulutli 
and vicinity that we are now settled in our new ([uarters, corner of 
Superior street and First avenue east, and ready to supply (Irocerios 
to cash buyers at lower prices than have heretofore been made in 
Duluth. It is reasonable that if we, by our cash system, save the 
salary of bookkeepers and collectors; buying- in large quantities, 
paying oash, getting cash discounts, losing nothing through bad 
debts, that we should be easily able to undersell the Credit (irocers. 

Let us reason together a bit: Is it in the interest of cash cus- 
tomers to buy llroceries from credit stores and pay same prices as 
those who iret credit ? 

Ponder upon this a little and we will let you answer the question. 

Compare our prices with iiiose of Credit 
Grocers is all we asic.

of the scH>p^i of its work. It is expected 
:liai. ;iie park commiiHsioners and ii,- 
OunimerciaJ club will also be repr^aenteJ

The normal school board has signified 
a willingness to acwpt a site as stK>n as 
it 15= tendei-vd. and the members of the 
board of eiucation ftel tlra: steps ought 
:o iv taken at once to bring about the 
t-'ndfr and accepunce befojv April 1 
the tirme fimrted for perfecting the samt! 
Three sites have, so far, been presented 
tor tender, one at I-*ikeside, one known 
as the Lincoln Park site, and the loca- 
tion offered by tht Motoi- Line Improve- 
ment company. Eas. Lawn, at Fourth 
street and Eighteenth avenu.- ea.'^t, is re- 
garded as a imnst desirable location but 
a>i a preliminary to securing it the sum of 
*H).000 must be raised to pay off exist- 
ing encui.-nbrances, and this is a large 
j^um of money for thes-.' times.

which was drafted by Professor Den- 
feld, and passed by th.- able efforts of 
Representativrs Cant and Mclnnts pro- 
vrJes that "none but high school gradu-

practically a college, and lifts it out of

John Owens Greatly in Favor 
Of It. 

John Owens ha.« been wo-king m.. th ■ 
county oad matter, and this morning he 
gave a few facts to a Herald man about 
the :jroject. "Few realize." he said, "th" 
imp._.rta.-ice of developing our agricul- 
tural resources, and in my opinion thi.^ 
road plan is just what i.s needed to get 
at the iKjttom and build up back of u'^ 
a farming di.-ti1ct which will add gn al- 
ly to the value of the community and 
cheapen and better our living. Thou- 
sands of carloads of hay. vegetables dai.y p-cducts are shiped into Du- 
luth an,-.ually f-om a distance f;r con- 
sumption. For this th- people of St 
Louis county pay in addition t.^ fin-^t 
charges, heavy freights. This mon .y all 
gees to other cities and is spent outsid- 
'.'". ^^'^ afford .'u • agricultural rx->ssi- 
bilities an opportunity to develop- we 
can aise every pound of thi.^ stuff our- 
selves, and i.nst'^ad of .'■ending our m.^ney 
away. It will stay right in the coiintv. 
ihen, when a man buys a pound»of but- 
ter -jr a, bu.ich of celery, he can feel that 
in.s'tead of ^jaying hi.>^ money awav ho is 
contributing to build uo the county 
Ev'fciy dollar produced fr.,m the soil is 
a dollar added to the wealth of thi.s com- 
munity. Our climate and soil are b>th 
admi.-ably adapted to thip 

"Now. let me tell you what this or •- 
Dosed county road means. St. L..uis 
county ha... 4.i'31..'i20 acres of ar.:a, < f 
which 49:1.674 acres is water of th > 
land. 60 oer cent Is good tillabU- soil and 
the larger of th- remainder will 
iTiake go-jd rjasture when cleared 
The question is to g^t this land s'-ttkd' 
when we can rea^. the benefits. The way 
to do it is fir.'t to ta;, th. s.. tillal)le ac v.s 
with a good wagon road, such as is pro- 
posed, to connect Duluth with th- 
ranges. We pay out $6..50O.0OO annually 
in the county f-iv ..n.ducts that sh.,.uld 
be raised right here; add to this $1000- 
000 for the vessiel trad.?, and the amou it 
IS worth co.''.sidering. 

"If wo had the $2ij0.000 given to the Du- 
luth. .Missabe & Northern \\f could build 
L'.V) miles of good roads, and that would 
mean the opening up for farming of 
320,000 aci-.-s of land, for each mil.- .f 
road '^pens up 1240 acres of land f j- a 
mil- back < n each side, to ."^ay nothing 
of the land back of that. Allowing . ach 
farm r 160 acres, that means 2000 farm- 
< i.s and a pooulation <f 10.000. 

"The market for the.'?- farm products 
will be the best in the world. In the 
handling <•• i on ore alone $3..nOO,000 to 
$4.000.0<X> in wag.-s will b-. paid out in 
cash this yea ■. Much of that would Ik- 
• nt with these fa-merp. It now csts 
$14 to ship a cow to by rail and $25 
to shio a team. With the thf^e 
aniinals ccnild b.. driven u'- easily. Su .- 
plies of all kinds c-.-uld be driven u< 
cheaply by wagons. 

"Last year the head of the lakes re- 
c ived :;i;;2 cars of hay. worth $281. SSO; 
1698 cars of wheat, worth $2,037,600; a ..1 
13H2 cars of vegetables, w .rth $250 .-)60 
That sh'iuld all be raised in this countv 
La.«t year- the Duluth & I ■ ji Rang.- 
handled $:;ii.(KtO in hay. $20,00i> in v>g- 
•'taVdos. and fh" I)uluth.\ Mi.ssabe & 
Xorthe-n carried $;i:!.()00 in all. making 
$S3,000 last year, all of which could hav" 
gone cheaply by wagon road if there had 
been one. 

"Every day th« head of the lak<-* 
receives 1800 to 2000 gallm.s „f milk bv 
train, all .'f which c.uld have com"- 
from St. Louis county. 
"The railr jads will oooose the idea."

The Aldermen Broke Over the 
Traces Yesterday. 

The new and the oki aldermen gat to- 
gether in Aldermun-elect Crandall's of- 
lice yesterday afternoon and smoked 
and became aequain'ted with each 
other. Mayor Lewis was present a;id 
Mayor-elect Truelsen also dropped in. 
An informal general discussion was 
h;>d on municipal affairs. 

It was given oirt jirior to the meeting 
that the sul>jeet of oftiees would not be 
touched ui>on, Imt it would have been 
just as dillicult to i)revent that as to 
keep the alderman from smoking.. 
i;veryone of fhem is as mum as an oys- 
t 1- today to all appearances, but Bome 
things have leaked out. There was 
• piite a little discussion on the sui,>ject 
of oHices. entirely in a .general May. 

It is the disi)osit!on of ithe aldermen 
tx work in harmony with Henry Truel- 
sen and there will be no unfrienillines.s 
towartl iiini. 

The city attorneyship was not dis- 
cussed at all. The city clerkship re- 
ceived some little considera/lion. and it 
developed that there is a strong senti- 
ment against Mr, Ri(hardsf>n and he 
will have considerable opposition to 
(iinti-nd with, in spite of tlie faet that 
he !s recognized .us an excellent oliiei r. 
Fred Russell has a number of friends. 

.\ strong pull is being made to keep 
Dr. Routh in oflice and .some of the al- 
dermen whf) were supi>osed to be un- 
(•■■mnromisingly a.gain.s.t him. are for 
him quite strongly. There is a hot fight 
fhead. howevtr. lor there are some al- 
dermen who are very bitter against 

Chief IJIaek's path is not apt' to be 
(initc as rosy as he wouKl like it. .\ 
niiinber of the aldei-men are of the 
"liini(>n that the salar.v which is now 
attached to that otlice is more than the 
city can afford to pay. To the state- 
ment that he is one nf the b<-sl firemen 
in the country they answer with thi 
(|i'e.'»tion: Can Duluth. which is onlv a 
small city be expected to hire the best 
in the (lountry? The sentiment In refer- 
ence to this oflice seemed to be more 
decided than tu an.v other. ■ 

The aldermen discus.sed these mat- 
ters for some time In an informal way. 
They realize that for the next three 
weeks they will be at th<' business end 
of a number of wires, which -will be 
pulled pr(4ty hard, 

Th-re is consid(i|-able speculation as 

Highest Honors— World's Fair, 


;i» Mayor Truelsen's probable ap- 
pointees and naturally the greatest ir- 
j lerest lies in the question as to who will 
be chief of police. Qne of those indi- 
viduals who professes to know. and 
these are many, said tod.ny that .lames 
W. Sargent, the St. Paul & Duluth con- 
ductor, will be the lucky man. He has a 
petition out now and expects to pre- 
sent it to Mayor Truelsen with tb.e .'Sig- 
natures of 2(H)o laboringmen as an ar- 
gument in his fa^-or Iwan Hansen i.s 
net out of the race by any moans, and 
it is surprisin.s: to know how many peo- 
ple pick liini for the 'vinner. 


W. 0. Sherwood Says Outside 
People Are Interested. 

W. C. Sherwootl returned yisieniay 
from a trip to Chicago and through Illi- 
nois and Indiana. To a Herald man be 
said: "I never made a trip wherf- f 
found people talking mor(> favoral)lv of 
Duluth. Kveryone is si)eakiiig more hop<- 
fully of the general situation, and Hie 
general impres.sion seems to be that the 
eeiintry is on the eve of returning i)ro.^- 
ixrlty. I etnild not find a man who did 
not .say that when the tinaneial legislation 
is all settled the coimtr\- will lake a 
start that will bring tilings ui) 10 their 
biKhest level. The money market will be 
einse for thirty days or .so. tlKUigh the

frfwn cai)italists. and it looks to me as 
lb<iii«li those wlio can bold on will soon

An(\ people were snriirised when 1 showed

Pearl Bryan's Slayers Both 
Waive Examination. 

<^lnelniiati, Feb. i:i.— VVliiU the patrol 
wagon drove to the Jail door on Sycamore 
street this morning to take Jackson and 
Walling to the police court, there was a 
curious crowd 0!i the sidewalk to cuteh 
sneh glimpses of the prisoners as could be 
h;d, as they mount(>d the stairway from 
ttie jail door to th<' sidewalk, end crossed 
the walk to the wagon. Both were hand- 
i-uffed. but tli'y entered into no coiiversa- 
liDM as they met for the first time for 
several days. They were driven quickly 
to the city hall and were placed in the 
cells until they should be called for their 
Ilea rings. 

.Meantime a most unusual scene was wit- 
nessed in and libcut the court room. There 
was a wild struggle for admission into 
tile little temple of police justice ;.nd the 
liallways adjacent were jammed with men 
and women, who were unable to <'Ven look 
into the <loorway of tlie court room. An 
exti-a detail of officers was necessary to 
keei> the crowd from ilegenerating into a 
mol). It was a long time l)efore the i)ri.son- 
ers were brought up for examination, and 
ilie process was vei'y brief. They both 
waived examination, and were ordered to 
l)e <e.mmitted to without bond, on 
the charge of being fugitives from justice 
and the ease was continued until Feb. 18. 

While the commitments were being pre- 
pared, llie men were returned to their 
rells. Sheriff Plummer, cf Newport, will 
at once apply to the governor for requisi- 
tions for the i)riPoners. 

Wililam F. \V,:-od. whose case was also 
set fcr today and who was out on bond 
did not appear when calkn] and his bond 
was promptly forfeited. Subsequently 
he came in and his case was continued 
until Feb. 2.">, and was locked up until a 
new bond can be given. Both Jackson and 
Walling were represented by attorneys. 
The charges preferred against the prison- 
ers were murder and being fugitives 
from justice. Upon suggestion of Atrorney 
Mercy, who appeared for Walling, the 
inunler charge was withdrawn and the 
other charge left against them. 

The authorities say that as the murder 
was ecmmitled in Kentucky no re- 
sistance will be mad^ v/hen the prisoners 
are asked for.

.May Result in a Transfer of 
Carnegie's Works. 

Cleveland, Fi'b. 13.— A special from 
Massilon says: The reorganization of 
the Wheeling & Lake Erie railway with 
A. G. Blair as president and T. L. 
Johnson, of Cleveland, as one of the di- 
rectors, is taken to be that the long 
contemplated plan of securing an inlet 
into Cleveland and Lorain will be un- 
dertaken. As the head and front of the 
great Johnson steel and iron works at 
Lorain, the ex-congressman is in a po- 
sition to be of great service to the rail- 

Another theory, advanced by the lo- 
cal railroad officials. Is that Tom L. 
Johnson's election to the directorate of 
the Wheeling <fe Lake Erie, points to 
the transfer of the Camegie or som^ 
other iron interests from Plttsbna-g to 
Huron., Texas. Feb. 13.— Many of the 
sports here are becoming so anxious about 
their chances of seeing the big fight that 
they last night declared their intention of 
watching the depots all of tonight to avoid 
being left. Besides the sports. Gen. Ma- 
bray's Hangers are carefully watching 
every train that pulls out, with the inren- 
lion of boarding it if they see any inten- 
tion of pulling off the fight in Texas. 
Siuart has repeatedly assured the adjutant 

general that he has no intention whatever 
of pulling off the tight in Texas. 

At 2:3i) a. m. to<lay the Rangers dis- 
covered two cars loaded with what they 
thought to bi.' carnival paraphernalia at- 
tached to a Southern Pacific freight train 
just pulling out for the West. Capt. 
Hughes, cf the Rangers, ordered the train 
delayed until permission had been obtained 
for four of his men to accompany it to 
the state line. This was granted and the 
Rangers rode away on the train. 

it is jiracticaly certain now that the fight 
will be on Mexican soil somewhere. It 
will be a dash across the border and a run 
for home after the fight is cvev. If the 
.Mexican troops can manage to reach the 
battle ground the chances are thai it will 
be mere than a run. It will be a wild 
and tumultuous flight with the chances 
against those who are unable to swim the 
Rio Grande. There are places where an 
agile man may be able to jump across it, 
and although nobody has ever done it. a 
terrified sport can do great things when he 

Large delegations are expected from the

The Senate Discusses Them 
With Some Acidity. 

Washington. Feb. 13.— The Pacific 
roads came In for unexpected discus- 
sion in the senate today. Mr. Allen 
sought to secure the adoption of a reso- 
Intioii calling on the secretary of the 
interior ftir full Infiirmation as to the 
status of tile Union Pacific, Kansas Pa- 
cifie, Sioux City & Pacific roads. Mr. 
Brice suggested that the senate com- 
mittee on Pacific railroads could better 
(•rnduct an inquiry. He suggested that 
tile committee l>e directed to make the 
iiivestigatif-n with power to send foi- 
persons and papers. 

Mr. Allen a<ceiited the suggestion 
and said that he did not doubt that the 
conimittef would jirosecute the inquiry 
In good faith. Mr. Wolcott, a member 
of the committee, gave assurance that 
this would be the fullest Inquiry. This 
brought out some criticisms from Mr. 
Allen. "Thus far, " he said, "stockhold- 
ers, bondholders and their agents and 
attorneys have appeared before the 
committee, but the patrons of the road 
had not been examined. He failed to 
notice that boards of trade and com- 
mercial bodies from cities along the 
Pacific roads had been heard. He sug- 
gested that the P.aciHc road committee 
could profitably turn from the stock 
brokers, stockholders, attorneys and 
lobbyists and give attention to the hon- 
est patrons of the road. 

Mr. Wolcott pointed out that every 
one who came before the committee 
was heard, including delegatioms from 
W^estern cities. There was no means of 
advertising for patrons of the roa<l and 
bringing them here. 

Mr. Morgan secured the adoption of 
an amendment empowering the com- 
mittee to administer oaths to witnesses. 
The senator .said the persons who came 
befotx' the committe-> did so voluntarily 
to save their per.stmal interests. While, 
there he wanted them put under oath, 
so as to make them responsible for 
their statements. The discussion 
brought out the fact that the hearinj^s 
thus far had not been under oath. The 
resolution was adopted, directing the 
ci mmittee to make inquiries and em- 
IX wering the administration of oaths 
to witnesses. 

Th' consideration of the deficiency 
bill was continued durlt.g the afternoon 
there being quite a long debate on the 
exoenses of the ITnit.^d States courts. 

The urgent d'ficiencyaptx'opriatlon bill 
was nasssd on a motion to take U) the

Will Place Its Evidence With 
the Commission. 

Washington. Feb. 13.— Through Senor 
Andrade, its minister, the government 
of Venezuela has notified Secretary 
Olney that it will respond affirmatively 
lo the invitation of the Venezuelan 
boundary cominission to submit all of 
the evidence in its pos.session touching 
the true boundary line. He said that 
officials of the government of Vene- 
zuela are now at work compiling the 
record and It would be forwarded to the 
commission at Washington as soon as 
pcs:sible. Presumably the Venezuelan 
government will be rejiresented before 
the cGnimi.<^sion by an agent or couns'-l, 
as suggestetl in the invitation, as the 
minister has strongly recommended 
this course.

No formal action was taken but the sen-

dent, and a solid delegation for him is 
considered certain.

Berlin, Feb. 13.— Dr. Hammerstein, in the 
reiehstag today, speaking on behalf of the 
National Liberals, praised the government 
for the attitude which it had assumed to- 
ward the Transvaal and declared that Em- 
peror William's message to President Kru- 
ger, congratulating the latter on having 
suppressed Dr. Jameson's raid, responded 
to the feelings of all Germans. He added; 
"We are proud of it and repel unjustifi- 
able criticisms." 

The minister for foreign affairs. Baron 
Marsclial Von Bieberstein then reviewed 
the recent events in the Transvaal, and in 
so doing stated that the government knew 
ab.=olutely nothing about any request

Heaps of Flowers Wasted on 
the Murderer. 

Troy, N. Y.. Feb. 13.— The Bat Shea fu- 
neral is being made the occasion of a 
great demonstration of sympathy with 
the family of Shea. Until midnight there 
was a constant stream of people parsing 
through the parlor in which the body of 
Shea lay encofllned. The employes of the 
shirt, collar an<l cuff factory sent a num- 
ber of lloral tributes. The most preten- 
tious was a "gates ajar" bearing the In- 
.>-iripiion "innocent." 

At each of the shops funds have been 
sul>seriti<Hl for the nurchase of flowers to 
be sent to the Shea house. Three hundred 
dollars at one, JKMI at another and $50 at 
another Jind similar amounts at each 
of the others. This money will l>e used for 
the purchase of flowers and the funeral 
exi)enses. At the funeral this morning a 
vast concourse of people were present. 
Several vehicles were required to carry 
the flowers. 

The Whole Plan Said to Be 

MinnsapoHs. Feb. 13.— The proposed 
pool of the whi::e pine men, by which it 
was hoped to bring abou: a curtailment 
of the cut is now said to be ln»possible. 
owing to the refusal of the Menominee 
manufac:urcrs to co-operate. The latter 
felt that rhcy were sure of a market for 
their en'are cu: anyway, and .saw no ad- 
vanrage in curtaWment. 

The Saginaw and liay City mills felt 
:he same way. and accordingly Duluth 
and -Vshland have r^firsed to come in. 
Thus the whole plan is impra;C':icable. 


Denver. Feb. 13.— The departure from 
Denver of the special train carrying men 
to New York to Inaugurate the new min-

ring and a diamoml button. Har- 
mens found th*' money hidden under 
a clump of bushes near Saei-nmento. 
where the robbers who h nl h'-ld up the 
train buried it. 

It is known the ndthers obtained 
over .$.")i).iMM) from the Wells Fargo tom- 
p.iny. but Harmens did not lin<l .ill the 
plunder. He .says he llgures he ob- 
liiined only $20.0(Mt. hut it is believed 
tliat these figures are rather under the 
exiet amount. This eon»lusion is based 
on the fact that when P.rady. one of the 
b.-ndits. confe.>*sed .iml to. tk the ofti<'ers 
to the idace whei(- the money was 
buried, only $(;otM» w is found. Harmens

Gladness Comes 

■yX/ith a better understand inf,' of the 
' ' transient nature of tlie many pliys- 
» ical ills which vanish before proper ef- 
forts—gentle efforts —pleasant cffcjrts— 
rij»-htly directed. There is comfort in 
the knowledg-e that so many forms of 
sicknes.s are not due to any actual dis- 
ease, but simply to a constipated condi- 
tion of the system, which the pleasant 
family laxative. Syrup of Fips. prompt- 
iy removes. That is why it is the only 
remedy with millions of families, and is 
everywhere esteemed so hijfhly by all 
who value g-ood health. Its beneficial 
effects are due to the fact, that it is the 
one remedy which promotes internal 
cleanlines.s, without debilitating the 
j^r^'ans on which it acts. It is therefore 
all important, in order to >»'et its bene- 
ficial effects, to note when you pur-, that you have the g-enuine article, 
which is manufactured by the California 
Fig Syrup Co. only, and sold by all rep- 
utable drug-g-ist.s. 

If in the enjoyment of g-ootl health, 
and the system is regular, then laxa- 
tives or other remedies are not needed. 
If afflicted with any actual di« ■ one 
may be commended to the most : l.iilful 
physicians, but if in need of a laxative, 
then one should have the bcrt. and with 
the well-informed everywhere, Syrupof 
Fips stands highest and is most largely 
used aiiCtnyes most general satisiaction. 

Xow while it is shown hf^.-.y that there 
is eve.-y r.^ason to expect at least seven- 
term feet of wate.- at n. ..-mal stage next

ga 1 trade, it may b:- said in a g n ral 
way that there is net row a har- 
b « • n Lake that will admit vs- 
sels of that draft. Ashtabula barb' r 
will afford such a d-aft shortly after the 
openii g ..f navigation, but even at that 
point thi.-e is dange;- of the mouth of

Grossly Exaggerated. 

The story of the arrest of Charles 
Muntray. published in a morning 
l*a[i«'r. is gro.s.sly exaggerated. The 
troulile is said to lie in a misunder- 
.staatling between Al'intiTiy and his em- 
ployer, Joe RIfMim. The f..rmer claims 
that his employer faib d to pay his tra- 
\eling expenses as h<* agrtd to, .s«» he 
kept it out of hi.s collections. T'ti-- 
amount is small, and does not nearl> 
jipproach t'^M. as slated in the morn- 
ini! pap>-f. William ''anipliell is waiidd 
for making a wa.v with his traveling 
out fir and three suits of clothe.s iie- 
longiiig to Hloom. 

Montray wa.s arrested T i sday and 
was arraigned in inunicipal lourt tliis 
morning on a charge of ste!i!i>ig $141. 
H«aiing was set for Rattirday at '.i/'A 
a. m. and bail was n.xed at jir.d. fiir- 
rdshe<l li.v Alderman Trevilli<m. 

A Handsome Store.

of T. J. Anderson & Co., recently

<leHeives meiiiion. The proprietors ar-- 
veterans in theii- line and their exi>eri- 
ente and judginent enaides thetn to

everything in the griK-ery lin--. frum

tal>le luxuries. Messrs. Anderson & Cf).. 
besides their large establishment in 
this city, conduct stores in other parts 
of the stat"^. They will undoubtedly 
have th" large trade they merit.

There was 
t'liicauo who ha> 
satisfaction that 
article in tin 
\esi an 


Th»- con<ert at Normanna hall last 
evening at which Alexander Bull, son 
of the famous violinist, Ole 
Bull. appeared. was a great 
success. the attendance being 
large and the music excellent. Mr. Hull 
uses his father's favorite instrument, 
a Guarnerius. and has Inherited much 
of his famou.s parent's genius. He 
played a number of his father's famous 
compositions and was received with 
great enthusiasm. 

Er^-ind .Vakhus assisted and gave a 
number of selections on an eight- 
stringed violin. He is a remarkable per- 
former. Miss Hilda .Swansf)n gave some 
charming piano numl)ei-s. 

Some of the Arguments Which 
Arc Being Used. 

The .'-.crainbl'- liu* oiiici'.-; < intitiues as 
lively as i-vcr and the aldermen and 
Muyor-el-ct Truelsen are being be- 
sieged all day long. The crcifest for the 
P'sition of he.iltli ofliier is becoming 
very spirited. The physicians are mak- 
ing a strong canvass for tiieir clioic-. 
Dr. ltf>binson, and he is considered t > 
have the best shr)w, if Dr. Routh is V) 
be dropiM'fl. A strong fight f(»r the lat- 
ter is being made. The great argtinunt 
advan. ed for his r''t»-ntion i.s that in 
the litigation riKainst the water com- 
pany, which ttie city is alK>ut to be- 
come involv.d in, the services of Dr. 
Routh will be indisi>ensil»le. be<ause 
as health ofljccr he has giiined much 
infoimation which the city must have 
and which cannot be obtained unless 
he chooses to give. 

No one has as y 't stated wliat this 
information is, but if is beiiig held 't\*-y 
the new ald'rmcu by liouth's friernls. 

The same argument is being made in 
.Mr. (■ int's interest and it is having 
ccrisjilerable weight too. One f>f the 
knowirig ones said today that thi^ next 
city attorney will be either .Mr. Cant 
or Ellsworth Benham. S. D. Allen has 
denied, that he has any nfttion of tak- 
ing the city attorneyship, but a strong 
titrlit is being made for him. 

All t'ars that Aldermen-eleet Cov- 
entry would fail to qualify and that th" 
shadow of Howard had fallen across 
the chair of the alderman frt^tm the 
First ward, were put at rest this morn- 
ing, Mr. (^oventry r4ualifying and filing 
his afhdavit of campaign exp<mses In 
the city clerk's office todav. 

Wheat was <sirong at tlio o|»eiiiiin here 
today, or at least it became .so insiaiktly 
thereafter. While May opened >4C lower 
at ti2ES«c It uuickly advanced to tSc under 
Kood ImyiiiK orders and small offerings. 
The wi'atlier had |>erhaps most to do wiih 
the strength, althotish there were nihet- 
ri-ast)ns in addition to it. The Liverpool 
market was ipa3ic<l steady at unchangeil 
price«: the Northwe.«»tern receipt.s were 
somewhat smaller than at the corresiKjnd- 
ing time on the wtn-k before, ami the rail 
stiipnients from Chicago since Tuesday 
ainoiMileil to 232. HM bus. AJ'teiwards there 
was a reaction and May dt:opiied back to 

The snow, which fell to tlie ilepth ol 
twelve inches in ChicaRo. was much light- 
er elsewher*' and the preeifiit.-ition in the 
Southern tier of counties in Illinois ami 
over the most im|Miriarii i*irt of the win- 
ter wheal belt was in lie- sha|ie of rain. 
.As colli weather was pre<licie4l to follow 
the rain and snow, it was thought that 
ilainatfe might oci-iir thereby to the win- 
ter wheat i)lant. While that w:l.s the os- 
teiMsilije anil most i)roiniii'-iit feature of 

1 he ni-ws to wliich the strentrth of the 
market was ascijlied, the pftssible hurt 
to wheat from thtt <'aiis« was too remote

their buying, more thiin anything 
fresh in the situation, is the true inwai-d- 
II. ss of this morniiiKs bidge. The .Miinie- 
iipolis and Dnliith receipts 'of two days 
were S:12 i-ars compaf-d with W) cars for 
the corr<'.'^|>ondin« period id' last week. 
Liverpool closed :it '^d advance com|)afed 
with Tne.-s.lays closing <piotations. but the 
H.-rliti and Paris ipiotations were a shade 
low-er for the day. The market ruled 
strong to the dose and the lust sale was

Chicago, Feb. 13.— The outlook yester- 
day appeared to favor lower prices for 
wheat today, but though cable quotations 
were uninteresting yet some foreign news 
was re<-eive<l that gave a very firm tone 
to the market and was the principal mo- 
tive of a cent advance. Argentine cabU-s 
Intimated that their new wheat was unlit 
for shirimenf and that shii)pers would be 
unable to fill their contracts. Be<rl>ohm 
figures that Eurone vdll have to rely 
on America for over 70,rHK),0oo bus wheat 
in the next -twenty-seven weeks and says 
that the American situation is stronger 
than we seem to realize. The buyinif was 
tfood. and thouKh outside prices were not 
maintained yet the close was firm and 
wrth fair indications that we had seen 
about as much lireak as we would get. 

Corn and oats dull but firmer. There 
is a gooil demand from shlpi*ers, while 
the recent stormy wea.ther Insures small 

provisions ruled stronger and more act- 
ive, with heavy buying by packers and 
loc^il operators.

Dr. Xansen has discovered the north 
r>ole, accotding to a dispatch received 
from St. Petersburg today. Some time 
ago there was a rumor that the bravo 
Norwegian oxrjlorer had met the fate 
which has befallen so many expeditions 
to the arctic regio::s and had .erished 
with all his party, but this story was 
subsequently denied and word was re- 
ceived that h2 was still pushing forward 
into the gr'-at unknown :3glon and was 
likely to success i:i attaining the ob- 
ject of his amblti'jn. The scientific 
world will bc> thrilled with pleasure by 
the announcement that he has finally 
succeeded, and the report of his exoj- 
dltlon will be awaited with deep and 
wldespiead interest. 

It is unnecessary at thin time to re- 
count all th.? expeditions that have en- 
deavored to reach the north pol.'. Arc- 
tic exploration, as was pointed out by 
Oen. Greely in a paper at the last ses- 
sion of the International Geographical 
congress, passed through three Import- 
ant phases. The fi.-st was a cr^mmercial 
phase, when the discoveries of Chancel- 
lor gave rise to the Muscovy company 
and tho Institution of trade between 
Ct eat Britain a id Russia. The second 
was the g^-ographical phase, which cul- 
minated in the beginnl -!.g of the oresent 
century, and unde:- which an unparal- 
leled wealth fvf .esults has been mani- 
fested. The third phase of scientific in- 
vestigation has been proftilnent In later 
years, and dominated to such an ex- 
tent that no expedltloti could commatid 
support utiless its aim was scientific. Al- 
together, It is asserted, it can be proved 
that arctic industries have contiibuted 
sctne $12,250,000,000 to the wealth of the 
•world, 80 that from a conuncrclal stand- 


Jt'hn Ow .n.-, the cI^tk v i the district 
curt, who Is a walking encyclopedia in 
regard to the resources of St. Louis 
county and is an enthusiast on the sub- 
ject of developing Its agricultural r.^- 
SDurces which have been so much be- 
littled by those ignorant of the subject, 
Contributed an excellent interview to 
The Herald yesterday on the great ben- 
efits which would be created by the 
building of good county roads. Here 
are sune striking figures that he pre- 
sented; "Last year the head of the lakes 
received 3132 car of hay. worth $281,880; 
1698 cars of meat, worth $2,037,600; and 
1392 cars of vegetables, worth $250,560. 
That should be raised in this county. 
Last year the Duluth & Iron Range 
handled $30,000 in hay, $20,000 in veg- 
etables, and the Duluth, Mlssabe Jb 
N:>rthern carried $33,000 in all. making 
$83,000 last year, all of which could have 
g >ne cheaply by wagon road If there 
had be^n one. Every day the head of the 
lakes receives 1800 to 2000 gallons of 
milk by traiii, all cf which could have 
come fr:.m St. Louis county." 

Of the land In St. Louis county, 60 per 
cent Is good, tillable soil, capable of 
raising all the products that are needed 
for consumption here. The great ques- 
tion is to get this land settled, and the 
first step to be taken is to build good 
wagon roads from the ranges to Duluth 
so that settlers upon theae lands can 
bring their p;-oducts cheaply to this 
market. Then, instead of sending our 
money to other places for the products 
that we require, we would keep it right 
at home and thus build up a rich farm- 
ing district back of Duluth. It should 
not require any argument to demon- 
strate to the people of St. Louis county 
the wisdom of a policy that would pro- 
duce such a splendid result. 

Ex-Governor Roswell M. Flower, of 
N^vv York, in a communication to the 
New York Independent, says in sub- 
stance that while governor of New Yc/k 
he pointed out the facts that good roads 
might be had immediately throughout 
the state by bonding the several counties 
and the expenditure of the money 
through the su.^ervlsors in the several 
towns, o.-, in Western parlance, tow.i- 
ships. He further states that not a 
single county in the state of New York 
has adopted the suggestion, and that 
consultation with farmers has convinced 
him that they are averse to bonding 
their property, even with the desirable 
result of securing good roads at once. 
Thi.9 shows that It Is neces.sary to edu- 
cate oublic sentiment on this question. 

The Ka.-;sas City Star, In a recent Is- 
sue, says the setting apart of a day at 
the meeting of the American Wheel- 
men's league at Baltimore for the dis- 
cussion of the good roads question was 
one of the many "signs of the times" 
which -^^oint to the general Improvement 
of public highways all over the United 
States. There are not wanting ma.iy 
.such signs, and If the mo%'ement for 
good roads proves, as most movements 
for the public good do, cumulative In Its 
force, the next five years will show- 
more good work done on the common 
roads of the country than has been done 
in any five years since the movement 
i:i the t-a:iy part of the century which 
resulted in the construction by the gov- 
ernment of the famous national road 

The New York World has reduced its 
price to one cent per copy. This reduc- 
tion is made on account of the fierce 
competition whieh the World has en- 
countered from the Journal, which was 
purchased several months ago by Wil- 
liam R. Heai-st, of the .San Francisco 
Examiner. Mr. Hearst converted the 
Journal Into a flrst-clasa newspaper 
and being sold at one cent it has cut 
largely Into the World's circulation. 

Hon. A. Barto, of St. Cloud, is re- 
ceiving considerable mention as an ex- 
cellent man for the superintendency of 
the state reformatory, made vacant by 
Mr. Lee's resignation. Mr. Barto ik>s- 
sesses qualities that would fit him for 
this responsible position. 

The St. Petersburg dispatch announc- 
ing that Dr. Nansen has found the 
North pt)le and is now returning, is 
silent as to whether he is bringing back 
a piece of the pole, or whether he 
nailed the Norwegian fiag to its top. 

The queen said in her speech to par- 
iament that she was pleased to an- 
nounce that England is at peace with 
the great ix)wers. As for the little ones, 
she said nothing, because she can 
thrash them easllv. 

Illinois has two "favorite sons" this 
year— Senator Shelby M. Cullom and 
Col. Bill Morrlsson, of "horizontal tar- 
iff" fame. And with either one as presi- 
dent the country would be safe. 

"Drink, but don't drink water when 
you are in Duluth." says the Anoka 
Union, and there is no danger that Edi- 
tor Pease will fail to follow his own 
advice In this respect. 

Editor Pease, of the Anoka Union, 
never supported a winner. Just now he 
is attacking Congresman Towne, which 
would seem to assure the latter's re- 

William C. Whitney would have com- 
paratively little trouble in capturing 
the Democratic nomination for presi- 
dent. But he .says he does not want it. 

Senator Cullom has introduced a bill 
to give a pension of $24 a month to all 
ex-soldlers 73 years of age who served 
in both the Mexican and civil wars. 

If the Maher-Fltzslmmons fight takes 
place tomorrow, despite the vigilance 
of the authorities, you will find the first 
and best account of it in The Herald. 

His full title and name Is Captain 
General Valeriana Weyler y Nicolan. 
but when the Insurgents have .some fun 
with him he may find it difficult to re- 
member one-quarter of his name. 

My fiancee is a treasure. 
And 1 love her witholit measure, 
And each day I have discovered some new 
and charming trait; 
But it made me feel the saddest 
When I found she was a faddist. 
And that I must be neglected for caprices 
up to date. 

At one time it was Browing, 
Then "First aid to the Drowning." 
Then trying to discover why cats land on 
their feet; 
Then bric-a-brac collecting, 
Then "Views on Vivisecting," 
Then a dainty kind of slumming in a very 
dirty street. 

Goodness knows what next it will be; 
For a long time It was "Trilby," 
Until unto Najjoleon she became a devotee; 
Now it's Joan of Arc and her age, 
But I try to keep up courage. 
For I hope the time is coming when she'll 
make a fad of me.

there seems to be no let up in her wild

that the big firm of Panton & Wat.son 
has been dissolved and William White,

mistakes. Duluth has my congratulations 
in numbering him among her business 
men. He's all right and grades No. 1.

my blood was fired by .1 recent munic-

that morning determined to c.dl down 
the man who fiourlshe<l any b.ts

1 just remarked in a timid voice 

that 1 thought would beektt.'d. 

" 'Bet yer a twenty,' .s.dutetl my ear' 
"I looked at the speaker. He wis

him. He had .m Immense pin in his tie 
and his cold grey eyes, rendered i>e-

me like gindets. We imediately became 
the focus of all look.s. Uei-e was no

"Til take you.' said I, Hashing my 
$14 roll with the tenner ouside. 

" 'Who shall hold the stakes?' said 

my .sporty ac(|uaintance. 'Will ■ 

do?" naming an individual whose office 
was .some distance away. 

" 'Yes.' said 1 faintly. 1 wished we had 
n.imed somebody farther away; some- 
body in Kamsehatka or at thi* farther 
limits of Patgonia. Accompanied by the 
whole gan we started for the stake- 
holder's place. How I suffered. Every 
alley offered an avenue of j)ossible es- 
cape through which I longed to lly. but 
I was enchiined by that cold grey eye. 
Suddenly my sporty friend stopped. 
Some other rule of that inexorable bet- 
ting code that stamps as outlaw he 
who takes water, had. I feared, sug- 
gested itself to him. He gazed back 
along the trail, marked with drt>ps of 
my heart's blood. 

" Gentlemen,' .said he calmly, I 
it's time to crawfish,' and giving us the 
gay face he disappeared around the cor- 
ner. 1 almost fainted from the reaction. 
I never get after bets now, unless I 
mean business." 

« • • 
"I was once taken in by appear- 
ances," chimed in a man prominent in 
wholesale trade. "It was the only time 
I ever allowed sentiment to interfere 
with business," he continued, and 
those who looked at his firm, shrewd 
f3ce, believed him. 

"Soon after I had worked Into the 
wholesale trade In a small way on my 
own account, in another state than 
this. I had some difficulty with 
a customer of mine up the country. 
Finally I ran up to see him and punch 
him up in person. I found a venerable 
man, old enought almost to be my 
grandfather, and surrounded by an in- 
teresting family, the mother of whom 
was a genuine specimen of the un- 
Avorldly motherly mothers, the type you 
think of when you read of mince pies, 
roast turkey and Thanksgiving re- 
unions. I almost felt I had got back 
home again. The old man's demeanor 
was a happy mixture of fatherllness 
and deference, and I was glad to ar- 
range an extension of credit with him. 
"Remittances, however, came slowl.v, 
and finally, somewhat pressed by my 
own creditors, I decided I should have 
to close the old man out. Accompanied 
by a deputy sheriff armed with the nei^- 
es.sary papers, I dropped in on my i)a- 
triarchial customer. His face blanched 
when he sav,- my companion, and the 
good mother thiowlng her apron over 
her head, left the roi^m in tears. The old 
man seemed crushed. I was affected 
and walked around outside to struggle 
with my feelings alone. The old man 
followed my footsteps appealingly. 
Finally we sat down on a log and tlie 
old man told me of all his struggles 
and his modest hope that he might 
have been able to weather the storm 
and keep his family together. Finally 
his emotion overcame him and he 
cried, the tears trickling through his 
toil-worn fingers. It was too much. T 
gave him a further extension of sixty 
days, yes ninety days, then and there. 
Never shall I forget the disgusted and 
pitying look that deputy sheriff gave 
me when T called him off. But I could 
afford to ignore him, for my heart was 
full of the pleasure that follows a 
generous action, and we drove away, 
the old lady blessing us and the old 
man watching to wave us a last good- 

"Two weeks afterward. I thought I 
wC'Uld drive out and see my old friend 
and brace him up. My heart went out 
to him, up there battling with jwverty. 
As T alighted and tied my horse. I felt 
as if I were, almost, visiting home, so 
warmly did I feel toward the old peo- 
ple. I walked into the store. The 
shelves were e^mnty. My good old 
friend, his dear old wife, and my stock 
of goods, all were gone."

Clerk of Court Confronted With 
a Problem. 

Chief Deputy Clerk of Court West 
-stwd in the center of the vault in th- 
clerk's ofllce this morning j>lu:ig(>d i:i 
thcfght. Me locked painfuly at a pile- cf 
stuff that lookod like rubbish and scratch -d 
nis hoad in despair. 

••Wlu.t undpr the sun am I to do witli 
"'rv •"''..*' V"^' queried the pi.zzle.l ofllcial. 

J his liltl" vault is already Hlled to ovcr- 
now-mg, and now we have this stuff to a'- 
,ond to. 

The reporter suggested that from th" ap- 
pearance pt the pile the best thing to d ■ 

It out on the pile, but that pl:;n was 
shown to be impracticable when the nrit- 
ter was explained. 

The pile of stuff tilling two baskets ;;nd 
n-erflDwing ...a the florr consists of e.xhibiJs 
in cases brought in the district court ii - 
' hiding ratxr..^, photograph.s, letters, ax-s 
Pcks.bdcKs stone, ci.e shirt waist, and 
almost anything you Ike. By a rec"" 
-rdor of th- court the clerk Is made r,',- 
l-onsiible for all ih -se exhibits, and ars his 
vr.ult is air-: dy crowded he is having lr;s 
r Irniill.. to place them. An applicatj. n

Charles F. Firoved, on behalf of him 
elf and all o.her creditors of the insol- 
\vn. Sta:.e bank, has begun a sensational 
suit against, the stockholders of the ixink 
urd A. D. David.son, its I'eceiver, :o en- 
i iree the double Ijaibility of the stock- 
holders, and to have a receiver appointe I 
:.« suppL-jn: Davidson, agaln.«: wham 
s.tme sworn charges are incidentally 
made. The co.-nplaint alleges that for ; prior ,:o the assignment Firo\ed \v3s 
;■ eu.^tomer of .the bank, and that a: :b. 
time of :he assignemc-nt he had on de- 
p.sit $lTtt.53. I^ter he got judgmen:, 
ani an execution was returned unsatis- 
n, d. 

Launching, then, .into fh? matters at 
•ssii-\ he allege? that th? bank is insol- 
\- nt, and th-.,: i. is wholly unable to pay 
:is debt.«. Th- bank imade an a.^xlgn- 
ment Oct. 19. 18»5. to A. D. Davidson, of 
Lit:;le Fallls. wbo is a stockholder and di- 
i-ctor in the bank. He alleges th-t :ht 
.-\ook'holder3 hold a total of JS.SO,OfK) at 
eapital .gcock. that the liabllicies ar. 
SSO.OW and i;he asisots $r.0.000. Whdn the 
^ch"dule of iissets und Ha-bilities wa? 
!;Icd the assets were placed higher thar 
the liiab-Ilirle.s. He alleges thai t'iie .stock- 
holders are severally liable for double th 
I>-;i' value of the stork held by them. 

Con'.inulng, he .strates that $30,000 of 
:he liabiUties is due the state of Minne- 
s^ota on account <jf the sta;e deposit. The 
state claims that i:s indebtedness i.s a 
first hen upon the assets, and the at- 
:orney general recently secured an order 
for 'ihit^ ias?;gn/e to pay over all moneys 
collec.r'd un:il the account was cleared 
uo. The plaintiff claims that this mikes 
:h; state a preferred crediror, and tha: 
when its accoun: is i:«id the rimain'ns 
assests would make bu: a .?mall percen:- 
ag.' of the indebtedness to other credi- 

It is furt'ner alleged that when the 
bank took the srate's deposit, the usual 
bond of $60,000. double the amount de- 
po.>it;d, was given with five sureties 
I: is cJaiimed th.;t since that tim. two .^f 
these surf.ies have become insilvent, and 
that A. D. D'aviison and M. O. Hall ar 
th ' only .solvent sureties on :he bond. It 
i.'; chargrd that Davidson, in order to re- 
lease hi.n.self frcm the obligation incurred 
on tha. bond, is seeking to have mon^y 
sjc apart to pay tha'; claim, and that h. 
i.s usmg his position as assignee to hav. 
that done. 

I' is further claimed 'tha.:: Davidson has 
Wi-hheld the books of the bank froir. 
he credftcrs. and has endeavored to pre- 
vent by these means the formation of 
suits agia:inBt the bank. Finally !• i^ 
claimed Miat David.^on, by reason of hi" 
peirsoniil interest in the bank, :s un- 
worthy ,to discharge the duties of as- 

The appcintment of a receiver is askei 
so :hat the esta:e may be l.gally ad- 
min!.-?tered, and an order is asked direct- 
ing crediit-ors to .become parties v.ithin six 
monlhs, to enforce the double liability o^ 
the stockholders to an ex:en: sufllcient to 
pay off all the indebtedness. The recemly 
formed partnership of iVIcGinley &

Closinfl Debate on the Silver 

Bond Bill in the 


Crisp Speaks in a Forcible 

Way in Support of 

Free Silver. 

Mr. Turner Speaks Ajjainst 

the Measure for an 


Washinpton. Feb. 1-1.— The public and 
piivatt' galleries of the house were 
thri)nfirctl today In anticipation of the 
dosing of the debate on the senate freo 
coinagre substitute for the bond bill. 
The attendance on the floor was also 
very large. 

Mr. Dlngley, chairman of ways and 
means committed, insisted on the regu- 
'ar order as .soon as the jnurnal had 
i>e<.n read, and under the arran.^enicnt 
made yesterday, one hour was allowed 
on each .side foi' closing. 

Mr. Crisp, representing free silver, 
said this was an ei-onoinic- (|uestion, 
i'nd no matter what view.s the inembi-rs 
had ctUcrtalned in the past, he assumed 
in casting his vote today each nn-mber 
would d;) so conscientiously in ac<'or«l- 
ance with the dlctatts of his coiivii - 
tions. Mr. Crisp opened his argument 
proper with the familiar words: "In 
1S7:1 congress demonetized sih.'r." At 
the very threshold of this subject, he 
said, this was denied, and it was als" 
denied that up to 1S7.T we had had bi- 
metallisni in this country. 

He oiJoted i;,iron llothsehild's state- 
ments that prices were regulated by 
the agtfregate amount of the ciriiila- 
tion of gold and silver. Prices w en- 
fixefl by the amount of primary money 
in the world. If the standard in lOng- 
land was gold, in France silver, and in 
Chin.H silver, the measure of values 
would be the combined amount of both 
gold and silver cir.ulating as money. 
Money 'was th«> thing ff>r which all c(m- 
tended and the sum of the demand for 
money was eijual to the demand for all 
things else on earth. If a metal weiv 
made money by law, a demand for 
that metal would be created among all 
the people and its value would neces- 
sarily increase with the increased do- 
ma ml. 

Here, he read from statements made 
by Senator Sherman in ISTS that the 
demonetization of silvi'i- had caused a 
reduction of its price and had created 
a mad scramble for u<>ld on the part of 
lOiiKland, France and (^lermany. which 
hati aiipieeiated its price and had in- 
duced a fall iu sliver prices through- 
out the WDrld. That fall of prices, .Mi. 
Crisi) said, was largely due. he would 
nut say wholly, to the demonttization 
of silver, and it was not the fall in pri- 
ces that was complained of. but the 
(■onstant an<l steady fall of pri<-es due 
to the constant appreiiatioii of gold. 

He read fmni Mr. iialfour's speef^li 
of Feb. !), in tlie F^iglish parliament, at- 
tributing the decdin ' of agriculture in 
gold countries to the api)reciatlon aT 
gold anil the artifieial a'lvantage it 
gave to silver countries. Mr. Balfour 
had also ditdared that the obstacles to 
reform came not from abroad, but were 
put forward at home. 

Continuing. Mr. Crisp :;mimed the 
existence oP a 'well defined purpo«ie by 
those -n luthority. both here and aliroad. 
t) depress th? price of silver in order to 
prevent its rem inetlzation. He cited the 
ni-inner in wh'eii the H'.and-Aliison aill 
of 1.S7S was txecuted, the coinage of the 
minimum amount under the act, and the 
K-fusal lyf the tre.tsury, after a few 
months, to coin silver under the act of 
1S<X). He cited Secretary'isle's re- 
fusal to give silver for gold in 1S9.'>, "be- 
cause the silver was needed for the re- 
demption < 'f the tr Msury notes," and h's 
(Murse a •tf'W months afterward in re- 
deem'ng th./Se notes in gold. 

•What kind of Juggling is that?" he 
.i^'ked. "What S(nl of friendly treat- 
toent of silver is that?" (Applause.) 

He then direiteil his attentlf>n to the 
manner in which the parit.v betwcei: 
the metals had been maintained. Every 
iii)ligation (d' the govenTment. bf)nds. 
;^ieenbacks ami treasury notes, wci-e 
layable in coin. If that was not tni". 
and they were gidd oltligations, \\ by tlid 
not those who believed that have the 
c'Uitige to .say so and .save the tax- 
ridden peoples million.'-: in interest. In 
February. 189.">. congress could have 
SHVi-i the people $16.0()0,(MM( in interest 
by authorizing gold bonds. "Congress 
refu.sed," .said Mr. Crisp. "We paid $lfi,- 
(MMi.ono for the privilege of paying in sil- 
ver, and now you attempt to deny otir 
right to do so." (Ajjplause). 

"M". S 'eaker," said he. coitlnuing, "a 
!• w <lays ago ou." c:'idition was oiti- 
,ib|. . Th'> gr?atedt r.ali.iT in l-.itelllg 'nee

tht •;■ was n'« diffcrenc' of opinion, thai 
it could be aceomo'ish od by an interna- 
tie-al agreement. As an' ;ic fact, 
France had maintained the f.arity f o • 
seven yea.?. If ftur -^r flv^ countries 
(•riuld mal-taii a arity. it was C'>n-

He also rjuoled Mr. Shcrnuia uud Mr. 

Carli.'Jl ' (while he was in th" hout^o), to 
the effect that the unit 'd action of .sev- 
e-al cc;ur.trlea could sustain silver. As

If our mints w?re onened to the fre-

valu ' in this country, because any one 
havi;:g 41::'i grains could bring It here 
and g^t a ."tanda.d silver dollar's wnth

Wept .somewhat extensively into flgu'e'^ 
I" sh')W that there had be"!i no ove;--

Crisp decla • d that if the United State.- 
vve.uld but assert Its political and floan- 
eial iiulependence, prosperly would ri."- 
turn and continue to oerp^tuate the 
he.-ltagp of our people. "* 

Mr. C;iso spoke an h' u- and a half 
and was libeeall.v anplauded when he 
sat d'ewn. 


.Ml-. Turner was then, at the request oi 
Mr. Dingley, recognized for an houi-. 
•Mr. Turner, in opening, siid he did not 
pretend to be actuated by greater oour- 
.tgt^ than others. iHe should state opin- 
ions that had been slowly and caie- 
fuily I'ormed, and he should submit them 
with the greatest respect for those who 
differed with him. Hi expounded ex- 
h.iustivily, with copious illustrttions 
from our history, Gresham's law that 
w-henever an attemiit was made lo cir- 
culate concurrently two metals of differ- 
ent values, Ihe cheaper metal would al- 
ways drive the dearer one out of circula- 

He then addressed himself to the ques- 
tion, whether the Ignited Stttes tnde- 
pendi-ntly could restore the parity of gold 
.md silver. He would, he said, use every 
tes't known to a human triliudal. He 
would sumnvm Mexico and China, ■where 
silver was cnin^^l and was worth its com- 
mercial value. He would sumnvm Japiin, 
that noble strii>ling oi" the I'].ist, just 
feeling her strength, and just abuut to 
a'bandon the expoded theories of silver 
miinometaliisin. On the other hand, as 
vitnesses against this theoiy, he would 
summon the enlijrhtened and <'ultivated 
naitions of the world, England, Germany, 
Russia, Austria, France. They had ail 
closed their mints to silver. Proceeding, 
he took up the lUand-.MIison and Sher- 
man silver lavNs, under which $400,000,- 
000 cf silver had lieen coined.

BI(J Fl^ht Officially Post 

poned on Account of 

Maher's Eyes. 

Date Now Set For Monday 

But the Place is Not 


Maher's Optics Are Really 

in a Very Bad 


E), Texas, Feb. 14.— Peter 
Maher's eyes were a trifle better this 
morning, but there is no telling yet 
w hether or not he will be able to enter 
the ring on Monday. The opinions of 
the physicians still differ, some main- 
taining that he will be out In three 
days and others say a week. Even if 
Maher is able to enter the ring on Mon- 
day, he will not be able to do himself 
jusice. He has been practically out of 
training for a week and he certainly 
will be able to do nothing between now 
and Monday. If the fight comes off on 
that day Fitzsimmons' chances will be 
very greatly improved. He is in splen- 
did condition. 

This morning .Maher was still locked 
In the little loom in which he was 
placefl last night. The shades were 
diawii ami ever.v ray of light carefully 
excluded. Hot bandages wire applied 
to his eyes at freciuent intervals dur- 
ing the idght and when he flnall.v 
dioi)ped off to sleej) tow-ard moi-ning, 
a poultice was applied. There i.s no 
d )Ubt that he is in a very bad condi- 
tion. Maher is greatly worried lest the 
public think he has ba<ked out, or the 
siie eyes ate a subterfuge to enable 
him to avoid going into the ring. Any- 
body seeing the man's conditieni could 
not entertair. such a thought for an in- 
stant. He is not only utterly unable to 
see. but .soJielpless that he cannot <'are 
for hiiriseir. 

Connelly, his trainer, said this morn- 
ing: 'If Peter rounds to by Monday, 
there will be a fight as far as we are 
coniemed. We are sure that our man 
i an win even if he has been compelled 
to let up in his training. He is dead 
game and more than willing to fight. 
If he can see when Monday I'omes 
around, he will get into the ring. " 

Stuart Says that he is ready t;o pull 
oft the light at any moment when the 
men are ready. "We would have been 
on the \va>- to the battle ground now," 
he added, "if Mah(-r had been In any 
shape at all. I was pre-iiaivd to pull off 
the fight icxiay and 1 am reatly to pull 
it off at any time the j)iin<ipals are 
ready. There will be no fluke on my 
part when the tlrne comes." 

The spot where the battle ground is 
to be Is still a secret. Everybody thinks 
that it would have been in Mexico rrear 
the line of the S<iuthern Pacific rail- 
read, anywhere from fifty to 100 miles 
east_ of El Paso. Xoliody knows where 
it w'Ould have been or will be. Condi- 
lions may arise, it is ( laimeil. that will 
permit the light to com" off In Juarez 
without intei-ft rem-e. but this is not 
iikely. The mere suggestion yesterday 
of such a thing seemed very funny to 
Ctovtrnor Ahumada. 'Oh, yes, " he said, 
"right here in the bull pen. Let tlu' 
gentlemen come. It will ho so much 
easier than chasing tin in along the 
banks of the llio (rrande. and then the 
pen is so (lose to the jail." 

Peter -M.iher was taken back to 
Ciuces this morning. An oculist accom- 
panied the pugilist. He would express 
no positive opinion as to his i)at!ent be- 
ing able to fight within any specified 
time. "There seems to be a little less 
inrtemmation tiiis mirning," Dr. White 
said, afti'i- looking at tlie eyes just i>e- 
f-ore the st iit. "Maher may be able to 
( nter the ring Monday and make a 

Six Texas rangers kept guard over 
Maher's room last night. Two were 
planted .U 'the foot of the stairs, two 
.vcross Ihe way ami one on each side of 
the entianc-e. P'itzsimtuons came ovei 
li-. Ill .luarez t> the the.tter List night. 
During th,T> pei-formance two rangers en- 
t -red t'lo ibox and tfild Fitzsimmons Ik under arrest. The Ausirali.m va.'^^ 
fiigiiten "d, but was told to see the show 
.nd go horn", as he was not to be taken 
to jail. After the show, Fitzsimmons escorted t > the river iby the r.ingei-s. 

The managers insist that the light will 
take place. No attempt will be made to 
'iring off any of the other fights before 
.Monday. Many people are leaving the 
t-.ty for home.

Present Condition of the Iron 
Trade Warrants it. 

Cleveland. Feb. 14. — The Iron Tra le 
■Review this week will say: -Whil » 
there is no pronounced increase in mill 
tonnage from week to week, the feeling 
in the iron market continues hopeful. 
A significant feature is the general of prices on finished ma- 
terial, with so many mills only partly 
employed. The confidencf- that larg-^r 
demand is not far ahead serves to 
hold i>rices where they are, and mills 
are unwilling to make the sharp cuts 
that might result in fuller order books. 
V anting rather to b:- in position to take 
business at a profit as the demand 
grow.s. Conditions gt>vt.rning the pig 
iron markt't have not ciiangod. 

"A r>'"f)du<tion in .lanuary in excc^^s 
of consumi)tion caused some .settling nt 
J. rites on foundry grades, but the low- 
t'st prices on .Southern irons are not 
made by the large interests in that sec- 
tion. Reports from the East indicate 
stationary i»rietrs with more liberal 
Inlying of foundry iron. Mills are get- 
ting to the point at which more V>usi- 
■ must be had if the moderate Janu- 
ary ;)a('e of f>prrations is kept up. l)Ut 
there app.-ars a Kf-niral belief that the 
movKment v.ill arise in time to hold 
the present basis."

Committee of Safety Appeals 
to the Voters. 

Chicago, Feb. H.— Chicago's eonunittee 
of safety, which numbt>rs 100. has begun 
lis war against the eomlilnatiori in the 
council. It hivs decided to issue an appeal 
te the votei-s to forget party liut^ in local 
affairs. The committee regards the con- 
dition of the city as desi)erate, and be- 
lieves that the community is disgraced In 
the eyes of the nation l>y the personal am! 
otlieial condiiel of the aldermen. It was 
a dittleult task to get the ltn) together .so 
as to avoiil any political combinations, 
but it was linally accomplished and lust 
iught the committee held its lirst meet- 

Lyman J. Oage. who called the meeting 
to order, told the reason for the puUlie 
uprising. '•ChicHKo's reputation." he said, 
"is at stake. Its government has been in 
the j»os.session of unscrupulous men. its 
council chambers have been the scenes of 
violation of trusts, its tax systems are 
wrons and tlie revenue insuHicit nt. " He 
believiHl the sentiment of the iHople is foi* 
l>etter things. "The next movtmer.t." he 
concluded, "seeks men. It does not want 
!K>liticiaps who bring national issues into 
aldermaiiic elections. " The platform 
which was then pre.'sente*! after reciting 
how the committee had been called to- 
s-nther to remetly the pres.-.-.C deplorable 
eondiiion of the local government, con- 
eludes as follows: 

"We belie\e the great ma^ss of our cit- 
izens and voters desire honest, etticieiii 
And economical local gavernment. We be- 
lieve that while in national, and perhaps 
state politics. Kovernment through i>oliti-

It Secured Higher Support Than 
Any Other Yesterday. 

V\ashington, Feb. 14. — Am uig the 

nian.v amendments offered in the house 
uf representatives yesterday to the 
f I ?'.- silv -r coinage bill, the followin.g 
bj Mr. Towne received the highest 
suppoi-ting vote: 

"To open mints to the free coinag'- 
of silver at the ratio of l.'iVi: t') 1. when 
Germany and Fiance should have 
a.s;;-eed up<in similar action." .\I1 were 
dt feated by large inHJuriti -s. Tlie last 
proposition offered liy Mr. Towne. of 
Minnesota, mustered fifty-tliree votes. 
Mr. Towne had stated to the house 
that similai' propositions would lie sub- 
mitted t') the German reichstag and 
ihe French parliament at the juesent 

The mf)si significant statement <-ame 
in the form of an intimation from Mr. 
Dingley that a bill might b? reported 
frf)m the ways and means committee, 
looking to the initiation by this coun- 
tiy of a project for anf>Uier interna- 
tional monetary conference to meet 
within a year. 

While Mr. Dingley said he was sim- 
ply expressing his iiersonal position in 
the matter, it wa.s generally understood 
from the manner in v.hieh lie snid it, 
that the sugge.^ticm had already ma- 
tured into a well-defined intention on 
the i<art of the Republi -an leaders of 
the house. 

If you have dull and heavy pain 
across forehead and al)i>ut the eyes; if 
the nostrils are frequently stopped up 
and followed by a tlisagreeable dis- 
(-liarge; if soreness in the nose and 
bleeding from the nostrils is often ex- 
pei-ienced; if you are \ei-y sensili\e to 
cold in the head accomoanied witli 
ht-adac-he; then yuu may be sure you 
have catarrh ami should ( imediat'-ly) 
resort to Ely's Cream Balm for n cure. 
The i"emdy will give instant relief.

Kirk's New Dircovciry, Eos 'Elixir of

Discussed Today. 

Probably nothing cm be reigarded if 
greater imporb.ince to every house-

washing line. Soaps and ptnvders are 
1 daily, yes. hourly nece?.sity in every 
home, and to get the Ijest for the 
k-ast money is whm every housekeei>.r 
is striving Too much light cannc.t, 
iherofore. be let in on this su'ojoct. 
Every l/s familiar with the sen- 
.«-i-Mon created soroe li.tle time since, 
whfn the newspapers made a public 
e^nnounivrntfi': of the fa«-t that Jaimes 
S. Kifrk & t'l. had madi a. wonderful di.s- 
cuvery that would revolutionize the oUl 
way ut doing thr. f.imily wiishing, which, 
fiv>-m time immemorial, has been ivgard- 
t-i as a day of dinidgery. But this was 
not all the ^ood this nerw discovery wias 
to iiccom-tdisih; nothing had pre\'iously 
been dev;-vd for takkig the dir: out ^^f 
clothes without, t.j a c-.^t..;;n extent, in- 
flicfing- inji^iry to them; some more, some 
h^s; th'at depended upon the soap ,or 
powder used. No wonder the house- 
ke-eper was puzzled when she found, by 
trying flrst vi-ae thing .\nl chfn anothrr, 
t^tat the rcLs-ult was pretty much the .same 
— v:z. : clothes iiotting out, so when 
th-:- 'announe-raent wag) made that a gi-eat 
flrmi of ciiemlsts had devised an article 
that was absolutely h.'.rml. ss to the mo.q; 
d-clicate fabric, and no: only that, but 
made the clothes sweeter and clean-:r 
than they had ever b-een before, and thit

sei'mpks at Jhe cninting-r ooins of foe

to what 'the outcome or this test would

The enormous demand for Kirk's Eis

Can Be Had of .*ny Groccrymsn. Two Sizes, 
5 and 10 Cents, 


But the Amount at Stake is 
Only $12.50. 

L,)s Ang-3les, Oal., Feb. 14. — An.imixvrt- 
m: 'mtatter wzs argued in the United 
States distric: court Chis morning in the 
ciScl'of the Atlantic & Pacific railroad vs. 
tiie United States. The railroad is os- 
t-entsji'oly suin,g to secur-a $12.50 for the 
transportation of a soldier over its line. 
The real point to be decilded is whether 
the road is a land grant aided road, or 
If so it is only enti'del to half ratfS for 

-iri-ying soldiers; if it is not, it can col- 
l.-^-t full fares. Several couns;) for the 
government appeared and argued the 
.4§Fe. The authorities at Washington are 

iiueh intere-ste J, as the decision will 

.ffect the rates cWarged the govemnnent 
on other trans-contincental roads. Judge 
Welbarn took the imatter under aJvisc- 
.nent. Voluminous briefs hive been filed 

n the case.

W. E. Dorwin is down from the Mes-

sisn?d a contra< t with F. E. SeaJie, 
who represents the creditors of the 
people who leased the Hale mine, to go 
ahead with the development of that 
property. Work will soon be begun, and 
in a manner that means business. The 
Halt' is one of the best nan-Bessem3r 
properties on the range, and it has un- 
limited possibilities. It is near the Cin- 
cinnati mine and and has a large body 
it ore. It was formerly operated by the 
Standard Ore conipany, under the su- 
pervision of A. C. Bates, but the prop- 
erty became involved in litigation and 
nf'>v the creditors, represented oy F. 
E. Searle. are in active charge. 

It is understood that the work of the 
fi>rmer management has not been sat- 
ista«-tor.v and that the creditors were 
dissatisfl.'d with the way they were 
< ali.d upon for money and the wa.v the 
return for it failed to materialize. One 
who is Interested sa.vs that the np^r- 
at'.rs kept calling for money and re- 
l>r>rting once in a while that .so much 
strii>ping had been don°, and that 
when the matter was investigated it 
V. as foun>i that the actual v.cH-k was a 
very smalt projK>rtion of the work T-e- 
ported to have been done. A large

wi^uld say ni»tliing about the r •|"'rt.s re-

property is not in the best shape im-

Morning Paper Kindly In-

'I he captain, sergeants and secretary 
of the police force are rejoicing that 
their salaries have been rai.sed by the 
morning pape?-. Heretofore they hail re- 
ceived from the cit.v treasurv stipends 
rather smaller than they are now- 
made, the captain getting $10(» and th- 
sergeants and secretary $75 a mo.ith 
ea< h. It is supposed the scheme is that 
the difference betwen the rate pre- 
\ iousl.v in force and the pew rate will 
l>e paid by those respcmsmle for the 
raise. The patrolmen nre not in it, the.v 
having been reduced by the same au-

Tlie wheat market acted very simlllarly 
this forenoon to the manner of its pro- 
ceeding at the eorrespndlng lime on the 
ilay before. It starte<l at a sli>rht decline 
from the previous day's price, ami 
th» !i began to advance without apparent 
rea.«oii. To a ma.ioriiy of the traders, the 
action of the market appeared to be pure- 
ly a matter of bull maidpulation, but 
there was a respectable and InMuentlal 
mhi'ority who were convinceil that the ail- 
vanee was merely the outcome of a belief 
on tile part of those who were doing ihe 
bu.viiiK that a broail vb-w of the worMs 
.supjilits and the estimated reiiuin-menis 
ui.stirte,! more than present prices. It is 
the st-ntiinont that the higher |>riet!s may 
be the result of an honest expres.sion of 
opiidon. backed up by ib-etls, eomijig at a 
tune when the usual bold short selleis 
were rendereil timid by recent losses. Of 
imme<llate proumls. tliat is to .say fre<sh 
de .> lopmiiits. suflieient imder ordinary

Aftt.- M. T .wiic had ddiv.ivd the 
most iiowerful and eloquent speech 
hea.-d It ccr.gress for many years, and 
c"? which th<? Democ -atic lead?.-. S-ii-alc- 
er Crisp, declared was "the finest speech 
ever h?a:d in the house," the gold stand- 
a d men we.e comnletely demoralized 
and began to 4ook around for someone 
who would undertake to re.zily. Con- 
gressman Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, and 
othe.* leadirs i:>f the hous? declined, 
kno-wing their inability to meet M.-. 
Towne's facts and arguments. It looked 
as though ->o one would acce->t his chal- 
lenge, .but finally the egotistical Piofes- 
sor McCleary, who made such a spec- 
tacle of him^-lf in his debate with Mr. 
Harvey last fall, volunteered tj reply 

It was unde.-stood that the reoly 
should be made on Monday, but knowing 
that Mr. Towne was to deliv?.- a speecli 
at the Uncoln club dinner in Jersey 
City on Wed esday, aftr bo .rowing Mr. 
Towne's cha:-ts the brave Ccngrossma;i 
McCleary waited until he knew M.-. 
Towne would be -jut cf the city, before 
making his soeech. He was evidently 
afraid Mr. Town? would get afte.- him 
a :d show up his :ank fallacies and false 
statements. His cowardice Is n A su.*- 
. risir.g. It recalls an anecdote of Lord 
Chatham. It is related that cnce having 
made a Dowcrful speech in the house . f 
c inm- n."* he walk-'-d out with a si w 
ste ', being severely afflict.d with the 
gout. A siknce ensued until the door 
was cT'n to let him pass into th- lobby, 
when a member .started uo. sayi jg: "Mr. 
S oeaker. I ise to reply to the right hon- 
' -able ge itleman." Lr .rd Chatham. wh.> 
had caught the words, turned l)ack and 
fixed his eyes on the orator, who instant- 
ly sat d'iw~. H? then return'^d toward

KeferriUK to a reeent article in The 
H<rald regarding the decision of Com- 
inissioiirr l.ainoreux advorse to the 
state's claim to part of sei-tion .JO on 
the Vermilion range, the Elk River 
Star-News says: "If the state had won, 
.Vudltor Dunn would have received the 
ciedlt for It. If he had not begun th.^ 
case he would have l>et>n accused of 
selling out to the iron symilcate. and 
judging by appearances The Herald

sail hitu. The HeraKi api>ears more so-

c> mpani»>^s than it does for those of the 

If -Xuditor Dunn had not begun the 
I :ise he would not liave been accuse<l 
>>i ."telling out to any iron syndicate, be- 
cause there was no per.'?on. residing 
in tUjs secti<m of the state, who ever 
1 \en dreamed that the state could show- 
that it had any claim at all uinm the 
l;ind in (iuesti'>n. and ct>rtainly no one 
who was acquainted with the disputed 
forty" ever thought that it would be 
asserted that it was swamp land. There 
is no swamp there at all, and thei-e is 
no probability that It ever was swamp 
land. If it can be called swamp land 
then the bluff In the rear of the city of 
Duluth Is also a swamp. 

The Herald is more solicitous for the 
Interests of the state than Auditor 
Dunn has shown hltiiself to be In this 
particular ciise. It is asserted, and the 
statement has not been denied, that he 
has. as land ct>mmissii>ner of the state, 
given a state lease of this disputed land 
to lertaln nartle.s who are said to be 
supplying the funds for lighting the 
case before the interior ilepartment. 
TJie Heiald submits that Mi-. Dunn had 
no legal authorit.v to gi-ant a lease, in 
the natue of the state, to land to which 
the state does not possess title, and it 
submits further that, if he had been .so- 
licitous for the intet-ests of the state 
and believed that the state's claim to 
this valuable iron land nould be sus- 
tained, he would not have granted any 
lease of it. so that private parties could 
speculate with it and the state receive 
comparatively little. It is a deal that 
is highly discreditable to Mr. Dunn. It 
begets suspicions that there is some- 
thing radically wrxmg, and if Mr. Dunn 
had been jealous of his reputation he 
would not have entered Into it. Tliei-e 
are no iron companies interested in the 
disputed section to any further extent 
than that one holds a lease from the 
young man who honestly settled up<jn 
-thi^ land and whose homestead entry 
was sustained by the Interior depart-

It is estirmatetl, says the Kansas Oily 
.Star, that the Tnited States his already

mileage greater than thiit of any other

The Northwestern Merchant reads 
the daily papers a lecture becatiSe they 
publish advertisements frrwn outside 
c.ncerns which may compete with local 
houses, yet in the same issue of the 
Merchant there is an advertisement 
from a Detroit. Atich., cigar manufac- 
turer who competes directly with the 
cigar manufactui-ers of Duluth. Why 
does not the Merchant practice what it 
preaches ?

The last issue • f the Farme.s» Rail- 
road, the little weekly published b.v Mr. 
Hlnes in the inte-est of the pro^joscd 
Duluth & North Daitota railroad, con- 
tains fu -ther evidences of the great in- 
terest which the people of the West are 
taking in this enterrjt-ise. Mr. 
Hints reoorts that during the previous 
week he traveled over 1000 miles and at- 
tended railroad meetings at Bathgate, 
Hamilton. Olga. Langdon, Park River, 
Grand Forks, Crookston and Mcintosh. 
There have been a number of other 
meetings held, which he wa^s not able 
tj attend. One thing is positively cer- 
tain, and that Is that the people In the 
Northwest are going to better their con- 
dition in freight rates and railroad ac- 
comm idations. The recple are getting 
me*e enthusiastic ever this farmers' 
:allroad every day, and from the least 
t:> the greatest, they are saying that 
th' y will never let up till they get a 
sh rt line t.' the head of the lakes, and 
reduce their extortionate f:-.c-ight rates. 

"There is some talk." says Mr. Hines, 
"of changing the eastern end < f our road 
and running the main line from Deer 
Riv r to seme p<jint at or near FosstoP, 
and then lunning one branch to Thirf 
River and Warren, another to Crook.s-

An Illinois editor favors McKinley for 
president, because hv- "knows hta pei-- 
sonally," and some of the other editors 
n that state are cracking jokes at his 
expensv. And ye: what sounder reason 
can he advanced for support of any can- 
didate than personal acquaintance 
which has shown that the candidate is 
worthy ? 

Of course Mr. McCleary is now boast- 
ing that he comipletcly "punctured" Mr. 
Towne's arguments. But a man who 
failed .so miserably in his debate with 
Mr. Harvey and then had the nerve to 
assert he i)ulverized h'is opjxinent, is 
likely to claim/ anything.

much as Secretary Olney says the evi-

much leniency.

There is in tliis city a .voung M. D. who 
has but recently hung out his Me

most of his kind, is full of theorv but 
naturally soinvwhat short on iiraetieal ex-

IS not so very rcmarkahle, either, as most 
.M. D.'s have friends despite the g;.i)s thev 
-.nay possibly sometime make In their 
ranks. This .voung M. D. has an office not 
lar from the office of an old M. D.. wht 
is to his youngor brother in the profession, 
a mentor and a guide. 

Th-^ other evening the voimg M. IJ. hur- 
rie^dly left his office and btistled Into th-- 
street, trying to look very busy. He met 
his friend entering the building in whieli 
the young .M. I), has his office. The friend 
locked pale antl worried r.nd he grasivd the 
young M. D.'s arm appealingl.v. 

"Come back to your office," said the 

The young .\I. D. was alarmed, and llie

"What's the matter, old man." .said the 
.voung .M. D. as his visitor sank into a 

"Dee. I'm afraid something is l)uste<l, 
here in my chest." said the friend, clasi)-

D. tore open his patient's vest and claj)- 
ped his ear to the chest. 

"Regurgication O. K.," he cogitated. 
He gi-abbed the patient's wrist. The pulse 
wa- sli-ong, regular, though sliKhtly ac-

Tiie deefor got the water, and then pon-

or else write a e- rtificate of death fro:i' 
heart failure. There was a light in his c!d

"No," said the old doctor, as he reached 
forward, "If I wanted to reach the seat

he held up the ends of the suspender,

of the mystericns snap in the patient's

Car. ;nt.r & Palmeter, Jamestown, N.IT. 

Stomach troubles are so common and 
in many cases so obstinate to cure that 
people are apt to look with suspicion 
on any remedy- claiming to be a radi- 
cal, permanent cure for dyspepsia and 
indigestion. Many such pride them- 
selves on their acuteness in never be- 
ing humbugged, especially on medi- 

This fear of being humbugged may 
be carried too far; so far. In fact, that 
many persons suffer for years with 
weak digestion rather than risk .1 littb- 
time and money in faithfully testing 
the claims of a 'preparation so reliable 
and universally used as Stuart's Dys- 
pepsia Tablet.s. 

Now Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are 
vastly different in one imi>ortant fac- 
tor from ordinary proprietary medi- 
eines for the rea.sfdi tliat they are not 
a secret i«atent medicine, no .secret is 
made of thiir ingredients, but analysis 
shows them to contain the natural di- 
;i>stlve ferments, pure aseptic pepsin, 
thi- digestive acids. Coldeii S-al, bis- 
muth, hydrastis and nux. They are not 
• athartie. neither do they a<t power- 
fully <m any organ, but th<-v cure in- 
iligestion on the «v>inmon plan of 
digesting the food cat'Mi - promptly 
thr. roughly before it has time to fer- 
ment, sour and eaus.- the mischief 
This is the only .se.n-t of their succ .ss 

Cathartic jiills never have am! nev.r 
tan cure indigestion and stomach trou- 
bles be.-ause they act entirely upon th.- 
bo.vels. whereas the whole troubh- is 
really in the .stomach. 

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, taken 
after meals, digest the food. That is all 
there is to it. Food not digested nr half 
digested is poison as it creates gas, 
acidity, headaches, palpitation of the 
heart, loss of flesh and appetite-, and 
many other troubles which an- often 
called by some other name. 

They are sold by druggists every- 
where at .'0 cents per package. Address 
Stuart comiiany for book on stoma' h 
tliseases or ask your druggist for it.

vecu full.v de:emiined. 

As a physician. Dr. Magie said chat 
he Wis in favor of :he hospital, but as a 
— xpayer he was not. He thought it un- 
fair U;r the county to comiKi-te with tht 

.-ablished hj.spit.ils for private pa- 

ients. If the county hosapital was tj be 
for ccumy platients only, an 1 it did n.e 
ci>st ;oo much, he was in favor of ;:.

ing now occupied by St. Marys hospital, 
which will a)on 'move into its n:w build- 
ing. He fhuugh: $75,000 w.'.s too muoh to 
expend for a c<«unt.v ho.spital. 

Dr. Speier though: that the amount wa.^- 
tiM large, b-ut Dr. Ritchie thought ihi 
it should l>e a g>jod one. and he did no: 
think it couid be done for less than $7ri.-

Meteorologist Baldwin Thinks 
Nansen Has Succeeded. 

.Xai.ervilk', 111.. l\i.. 14.— i:vcly.i \). Bald- 
win, the meleoroligist of the Peary exi '•- 
dlticn cf US!«5-!tl. was asked this mortutig 
what he thought of the reported di.scovery 
■ f the North pole Ly Dr. Nansen. He said: 
••I think it highly probable. It is th^- re- 
sult of well calculated plans and not unex- 
pected. Dr. Ntinsen has certainly, it would 
r.ppcar, ajcompllshed that for wdiich he lias 
striven for at least ihr« past five vears. 
The voyage of the Jeanette under Do Unnti 
iuitil the crushing of the ves.sel in latitude 
<7 degrees, 10 minutes and longitude l.V. 
degrees east, indicated that the near ai - 
proach to the North pole was certainlv t < 
he m.ide by well equipped and i^roperlv 
eonstructed vessels fram that direction-^ 
by the New Slherian Islands. 

Th? Je^nett? had drifted through twi; 
l:'ng Arctic night.-? in th:»i region and this 
w<.uld certainly indicate that if it is possi- 
ble for a vessel under ordinary conditions 
\.n endur-' .so long, it is to be expected that 
on.' cf special construction, as was Dr. 
Xansen's. would succeed in going much 
farther. Dr. Nanscn's absence since ,Iu:ie 
:.'<, ISitS, has given hiin time lo make at 
least a very close api>rca(di to ihe North 
|wle, and I think it highly probable that. 
with favorable conditions, he has suc- 
ceeded in arriving at the long coveted 

Since communication with the New Si- 
berian islands, at the mouth <f the Len:i 
and Dell:', is conliiuiously had by means 
of traders and hutuer» of the region, it is 
not imprrlialle that Dr. Nansen has miins 
of seniling dispalchi-s yy the Russian settle- 
ments in ("I'ntral Siberia and thus horn ■. 
.''o I think the report is not ; t .ill improb- 
:tble. The apprcpriation niad( by the 
X.'rwegian government and stipplenientr'd

It was. however, exjx-i-led that ih" first

his theory that his vssel would drift with

ly, if not directl.v "Ver the North pole ami 
thence syuthw:.rd t> th < coast of (Jrecn-

117 illtli AvpiHi" W. 

W. O. Dodge & Co., of Minneapolis, 
have sued the i^Iinneapolis Chamber of 
Commerce C!??.r;pg ?s«oe!ati'.'n for an 

alleged wrongful selling of certain e;)n- 
tracts f3i< the purchase of 20.">.<)00 busiiels 
.>f wheat, and ask ?50.()00 dam.age.s. This 
lirm. up tiiiquite trsr'ently. had also oeen 
doing business on the Duluth board of 
trade. On Dec. 20 last the Duluth B; ard 
t>f Trade Clearing House association 
closed out th? firm's trades. The asso- 
ciation lost nothing, but realized suffi- 
cient to pay dollar for dollar. The firm 
has done no business on the Duluth Vo vird 
since. The Duluth association is ciiifi- 
dent that there is no opportunity to bvgin 
suit here. 

It is not generally known that the 
members of the cham'ber have formeil an 
indei>endent coi-'poiMtion called the Clear- 
ing association, lor tiie purpose of clear- 
ing and adjusting daily between them- 
selves all contracts made on the open 
ooird. says the Minneapolis 
These contracts are, at the end. i>f each 
session, reiported Xo the defendant ei)r- 
porations, and it assumes to carry nut. 
adjust and clear a'.l daily differences 
caused by the fluctuation of the maiUet. 

The plaintiffs allege that the defen<l:int 
hel«| itheiil co;n;traets which had ii -en 
turned over to it for adjustment for ihc 
purchase of 20r>,00() bush'.ds of wheat, and 
thit the defendant -wrogfully sold such 
contr.icts on 'Dec. 2.'?. ISlt."), and tiiat. by 
reas(;n of the i>f the contracts and 
the injury to plainiiffs credit, they ii,;v( 
sustaimd d im.ige. 

The contracts, for the purchase of .\'.». 
1 Northern wheat to be delivered in LMay. 
1S<J6. were turned o\er to the defunct 
association to be kept together with any 
iirofit which might result from the daily 
fluctuations in the price of wheat, !'^)r 
this service a valuable consideration was 
[laid. Dec. 3n. 18i>.'>. a dem.uid was made 
on th(« defend::nl f.-r the $456.25 pr ifits 
which had aecumulated. It was on this 
date the alleged wrongful conversion was 
made and th*- wheat sold in four lot.s at 
prices varyi!;g from 5;5V4 to 5:?V2 cetns. A 
demand was made for the reinstatement 
of the contracts or the payment of the 
d;ff(^rence in money between the day of 
demand, and "the inice described in the 
contracts and th«- price for which the 
defendant wi\)gfuliy sold the same, 
amounting to $17.«2.'>." This difference is 
placed at $25.<)(K) liy the plaintiff, the in- 
jury I0 their credit and business being 
placed at, a like sum. 

The peculiar puri>o.'-;e hn- which the de- 
lemlant eorpoi-atien is formed, and the 
lelation existing between the plaintiffs 
and the flefend:int m:ikes the a novel 
en-. aJid its (Inal disposilioii will be 
watched with iiilerest. especially by deali'rs. 

in response to an order from the di.-- 
trict court, Monroe Nichols, assignee f/ 
Howard & Hay de, this morning cr>n- 
ducted a sal- .;f th • Howard & 
stuck and fixtures at 10 o'clock. 
The order of the court wa- 

irisued Jan. 30, and the sale was called 
for this morning, directi;.g sealed bids 
r r sti-ck. fixtures and leases in g:'0i'5. 
Uefore the hour arrived a little knot > f 
'rospcctive purchasers we;e gathered 

in the store, together with Monro 
Nichols, the assignee. E. C. H<Avard, J. 
I i<:. Haynie, John G. Howard and W. N. 
r; arer, the attorney for the a.'^slgnce. 

The inte;-est was as deep though th 
rush was not st great as during th sale conducted just prior t 
th • assigom. ":t. when th ' store was 
tilled with a flghtirig. struggling mass 
■f womeo. with a sprinkling cf uncom- 
fortable looking men. all lookirg f r 
barbalns, of which the"- were plent\. 
The stock was then tumbled a:id dis- 
ir:-anged, and now it is ca.efully ar- 
ranged a.-d arrayed uoon the shelves i : 
a neat, orderly manner. 

Promptly at 10 o'clreck Mr. Nichols 
notified all v.h) had rot ^-ut in bids to 
do .so at ore. Two sealed bids came in 
resrronse to thc call, and the number ot 
t)ids thtn was ekver. There we.e bid- 
ders from St. Pau!. Minneanolls, New 
York, Duluth. Reedsbu.g, Wis., and 
>the:- places, and as Assignee Nichol.^ 
rrepared to jpeh the Vjids they ail gath- 
ered about t -> hear th:m. 
The geods offered com.jrised the stock 
•f merchandise, a horse and dclive.y 
wagon and the store flxtu 'es. all tho a^^- 
:• 'ts except the accounts and bills re- 
e ivable. The invoice value of the stock 
was $:M.207, the horse aod wagon JlOii, 
and the store fixture.- $500. The ae- 
eounts are estimated at $4974.07. 
Th' bids in the o"der of their size were 
as follows: John A. St -m $22,0.50 f..r 
the stock, leases and fixtures; Max Low- 
■ntha!. New York. $20,100 f r the stock, 
fixtures and leases; H. W. Rh'dei:. $!!<.- 
7.50 for- the stock, fixture? a-.d leasoo 
D. M. Hodge, $17..550 for the stock, fix-

48»,2 cents or the dolla- fo.- the stock. 
1t500 f-" the fixtures ard $.50 for the ho's • 
and wago-., amounting i i ali to J>17.- 
140,40; Webb & Schwek s, Reedsbu-g. 
Wis.. $17.:j;55.25 f:^r th-- stock, fixtur s 
a-^d ho .-^e and wagon; John G. Howard. 
Duluth, $16..500 for the stcck. fixtu">s ar.d 
' aseg; P. T. Cavana.ugh. St. Paul. $15.- 
000 fnr th" st'Ck and fixtures; C. W. 
Klst.n. Duluth, $1.'?.14S.66 for rtock. fix- 
tu e? ard he se ar^d wag -^; D. A.Y^ung. 
•.^••reserting Finch, Van Slyke. Y. u' g & 
Co., St. Paul. $12.S00 f-^r the stock: Vath 
& Miller-. Minneapolis. $11,6.50 for th • 
stock aid fixtures; W. B. Phel;?. $50 
for the horse and wog n. 

None of th • four highest bidder's were 
••resent at the sale, and none of those 
who were present knew whom they 
ren-eser.ted. For- th? stock, fixtures a'ni 
If-ases, John A. Stor-ms' bid '^f :?22.05O 
was the high -St. and f-^r the h-rse and 
wagon I. F-iiinuth a -d W. B. Phel's 
were tied at $50. 

The bidders wore instructed to d - 
nosit cer-tifled checks for 10 oer cent .f 
their bids with Assign?" Nichols this 
after;?r.on. and th^ identity of the suc- 
cessful bidder was left a myste.y until 

T'p to .1 o'(d(K'k only two cert Hied 
checks have lieen turned into Assignee 
Nichols and the mystery was as .deep 
as ever. The checks handed in were for 
D. M. Hodg<>. whose bid was fourth, 
and I. Freimuth. whose bid was next. 
Hodge was represented by W. U. 
Phelps, and he himself kept in the 
Itaekground for reasons of his o\\ n. 
His I>iu was the highest up to ;{ o'tdock. 
unless some of the thn>e unknowns. 
Storm. Lowenthal or Koodes, should 
apitear later. At :> o'clock Mr. Nichols 
left the store, remarkin.g that if the un- 
knowns uere coming they had had 
time to do so. 

Wrecker .Shelley, representing H. 1!. 
ClaHlin & Co.. of New York. had 
looked over the stT>ck, and it was ex- 
pected that he would bid. No bi<l ai>- 
peared fmiii him. but it was said 
I. p-reinnith's i>iil was for him. 

The awards will probably not '«e 
known before tomorrow.

Washington. Feb. !.'>.— The reported 
coiitinnation from Aiihangel of the re- 
port of the return of Nansen. the s'»fk- 
er after the North pole, does not really 
amount to a contti ination. in the opin- 
ion of (Jell. (Jre^ey and Lieut Schiltz. 
The latter is, with the possible excep- 
tion of ComuKMloiv Melville, who is 
temporarily absent from Washington, 
better post«Kl than any other oflicial in 
Washington upon the characteristics of 
the North Siberian coast which he has 
visited on ac governmental mission, 
l>elng charged with the distribution of 
rec-ords of the natives who aided the 
survivors of the unfortunate Jeanettc 
expedition. Said he: 

"This conlirmation of the Irkutsk 
story from Archangel is as if we had i« 
telegram from Pcu'tland, Me., confii-m- 
ing a story fr<im Sandy Hook. " 

(Jen. CJreeley took a similar view and 
held that It was incrmceivabie that the 
same story should emanate from two 
olaces .so remote from each other as 
Irkutsk and .^rchangel. He know of 
no way in which new:* of Nansen's ap- 
proach to the mouth of the Lena delta 
should also reach Archangel. 

With the aid of a chart. Gen. Greeley 
indicated the vast distance between 
.•\rchan.gel and Irkutsk, the latter v^"int 
being that where llie first rei>ort of 
Nansen's return started. He showed 
that if it was really true that news of 
Nansen's movements hatl reached tlv 
mouth of the I..ena. and had so worked 
U)) the river to Irkutsk, then it was im- 
I»rol>able that the same information 
could have reached Archangel. 

Then there was the same lack of de- 
tail about this last dispatch that had 
been noted in the tlrst an<l this absence 
or e\ en a hint of whr-re Nansen was or 
how he was communicated with casts 
suspicion on both reports. Archangel, 
said Gen. Greeley, is a large and im-

Maher Not Fit to Enter 

the Ring Before That 


El Paso, Tex., Feb. 15.— The news sent 
from Las Cruces last night to the effect 
that Maher's eyes are improving so 
rapidly that he would be in condition to 
enter the ring on Monday was ver>' com- 
forting to the crowd which is waiting 
lor thi- big event. Many efforts have 
been made to induce Stuart to bring off 
one of the smaller fights before the big 
one, but he positively refuses. He real- 
izes that his chanci's for pulling off the 
second fight are much for pull- 
ing off the first one, and that he has 
stil! less chance of getting the third off. 
He is bound to get Maher and Fltzsim- 
mons into the ring, and will take n > 
chances on anything that may interfere 
with the big fi.ght. Walcott and Bright 
Eyes, who were to have fought today, 
w:ll both weigh in and demand their for- 
feit, $250. There a lively shouting 
affray (jn Sm Antonio street last night 
betwit-n two si)ortlng men. They riddled 
the windows of the office of the Sanla 
Fe railnad. -but hurt nothing else. 

A telegram has been received from 
Connelly .saying that Maher would be 
in no shape to enter the ring before 
Friday of next week.. He will be all 
right by that time it is thought. At 11 
o'clock today Wolcott and Bright Eyes 
weighed in at the training <)uarters 
of the former. Both were well under 
the limit of 140 pounds. GRourke, 
backer of Wolcott. will not claim for- 
feit for the postponement of the fight. 
He and Kinney will bring the men 
upon the scales Tuesday and again go 
through the ceremony of weighing in. 

Connelly has asked for a postpone- 
ment of the Fitzsimmons-Maher fight 
until Friday, but no action has been 
taken yet. Julian ."^ays he wHl do 
nothing until Monday. If Maher Is jiq»- 
tn shape by that time. Jjjltem ii«r^ertde

cially thai the fight is postponed until 
next Friday. 


as c-onclusively showing that the Nor- 
wegian explorer is homeward bound, 
c\-en if he has not iliscox'ered the i)ole. 
Dispatches here from different parts 
of the continent indicate that the 
.same interest in the news from the 
north is maifested throughout Europe, 
and it is generally credited at the Eu- 
pean capitals, although even Dr. Nari- 
sen's wife and relatives do not beliexe 
the announcement that came through 
Kouchmatdff. the agent of Dr. Nans'-n 
near the mouth of the I^i na river, resi- 
dents of which locality frecjuently visit 
New .Siberia. Later advices say that 
news of Dr. Nansen's safety was sent 
by Kandaroff. the local Russian ofh- 
cial in the Yakitsch region, who was 
a member of the Siberian-Koffs expedi- 

Dr. Norden. who is in Christiana, is 
Inclined to believe the news of Dr. 
Nansen's safet.v at any rate, even if it 
is not true that he has succeeded in 
discovering the Nortli pole. According 
to the opinion of Arctic experts hei-e. 
w lien the Fram left Kara sea in is;i:!, 
she may have found the- sea northwaril 
fiee of ice and pushed on until she was 
locked in. They add that she Tnay then 
tie allowed to drift until tlie cx|n^lltion 
came to hind a'oiind the North ix-l':^ 
and that Dr. Nansen and his praty may 
lia\f retui'iied in sleds to tlic Siberian 

-At the Siberian islands it is believed 
Dr. Nansen and his companions may 
have been stopjied t>y the broken ice. 
Dr. Nansen wrote to Haron Toll from 
Yugro straits, saying that he expected 
to return to Koteny, Sibeiian islands. 
where dogs have been awaiting him. 
Scott Keltie, a member of the Royal 
Gcograi)hical society and the agent of 
Dr. Nansen in Kngland. In an intei- 
view today said he was surprised that 
he had not received a. telegi-am from 
Dr. .N'ansen. but he thought it prob- 
able that the explorer had returned 
after reaching the pole. He added, 
however, that he did not know exactly 
how Dr. Nansen would |»rove he had 
been there, except by his report and 
observations. ,\dvires received here 
from Stockholm say that the 
mlnistr.v has received promises from 
the governments of Great Mrltain and 
Russia to give all the assistance |>.is- 
sible to Profe.-sor Andreas' pr(»Jectcd 
balloon exocdition (o the .\orth pole. 
Cl-iiicnts R. Mfijrkham. president of llie 
Royal c;eopiaphi<al society, is sending 
u circular to Canada, with a drawins 

I>ortant Russian town with good con- 
nections with the outt'r world and if 
such news had reaihed there he saw 
no i-eason why full details we>'e not 
obtainable. Gen. Greeley called atten- 
tion to another iioiiit. whicli was tli;it 
if Nansen has really emerged from the 
polar regicms an.vwhei'c off the Siberian 
coast, then he lias himself dlspi'ove-.l 
the c-oi'rectness of the; theory Ufion 
which his expedition was embarked. It 
would show that Instead of there ex- 
isting a current across the jiole, there 
was a current that sw ept him up north- 
ward of Bennett islan<l to the pide and 
then returned him to his stalling point. 
C,en. Greeley not unnaturally 

thought the state -ef af- 

fairs was hardly i)osisble. CertainVy 
there was no scieiitilic evidence of the 
existence of such ail obliging c-ui'reiit 
lis this, and therefore notwilliKtanding 
the .Archangel sti>r.v. Geii. (ireele.v stood 
unshaken in his disbelief in the i-eturn 
of Nansen as described. Lieut. Schuetz 
made the point that has apparently 
esc-aped observation, that if the liist 
story was true, then .Vanscn was sight- 
ed or heard from off the Dena Delta 
away back last summer. Lieut. Ssheuiz 
is thru-oughly familiar with that coun- 
try, which is the most northerly Rus- 
sian itost of any sig.iificance. The 
means of commiiniiation are reindeer 
or dogs. The only travel between Yaku- 
tusk and I'styansk. in that countr>. 
is confined to a few half breed traders, 
who go up to the latter point in the 
early winter and sta.v through until 
the next spring. Maii.v months are re- 
qulrecj for the trip and so any news com- 
ing fi>>m I'styansk of Nansen must be 
\ er.\- old. Reverting to the- po.s«ibility 
•)f the same news coming from .\i'cli- 
angel he said that it was extremely 
unlikely, although It was not entiiely 
inipos^u^|le that after having lieen sight- 
ed somewheie off the Lena Delta. Nan- 
sen may have worked his way westward 
<'lear to the neighborhood of Archangel. 
Lieut. Ssheutz explained the difneul- 
lles that might be em ountered in the 
attempt to tracc' such a rumor. He said 
that the natives who might have sight- 
ed an Arctic explorer, would not con- 
ceive the nature of his undertaking 
and owing to thc-ir dense ignorance, it 
would hardi.v be possible foi- them to 
transmit an intelllgll'l(> account of the 
event to civilization. In Illustration he 
noted the cxp'-rience of Nordjeskold. 
who passed one of the Siberian Island 

(Coaliiiucd on pagv o.) 

to grant leave of absence to homestead- 
ers on the Yankton Indian reservation 
and to certain lands in Arizona 
fc)r educational purposes, were con- 
curred in. 

Mr. Ray called up the Hoatner reso- 
lution, direiting the committee on ju- 
diciary to iiiv(-stigate the ri.ght of th>- 
comptroller of the trea,sury to rcfiis, 
to exec'Ute (he law on the ground of its 
alleged unc-cmstutioiiality and if it was 
found that he had violated the law to 
refKirt by bill or otherwise, which had 
i)een amended so as to make the iiKiulry 
general into the right of executive of- 
ficers to to execute laws on the 
ground of their unconstutionality. This 
re.s(dution was the outcojne of the de- 
c-i.siou of Col. Trotter Bowler 
in Ihe sugar bounty cases. 

Ml-. Ray explained th" long contro- 
versy which had resulted over the 
comptroller's decision, '-it must be con- 
ceded on all hand.s. ' .said he. •that the 
i|ucstif»n is not frtki fr(»m doubt. The 
cr.mmittee." he said, "had thought it 
best to make the inciuiry general in- 
stc«ad of confining it to the i-ight of a 
single officer^ TJie I'esolution was not 
reported." he said, "with a view of 
cen.surlng any officer, but to determine 
whether it was !)roper to recommend 
an amendment for tin- enlargement or 
restriction of the law." 

•Mr. Tei-iy. a member of the judiciary 
committee .said he did not desire to 
make an.v facetious ojiposition to the 
it>.solution. but he wanted to go on rcM-- 
ord as opposed to the ulterior 
si>ught to be obtained. Hi- believed thai 
an executive oflicer execut. d an un<c>n- 
stitnlional statute at his peril and that 
i: was therefore his duty to inciuire inio 
the iinconstitntionality of a statute 
when the matter was bi-ought direi'lly 
to his attention. Th.- resolution we.s 
adopted. <

In a general way it is believed that the

to cover one h.tlf of the entire loan, i>re-

Lomlon. Feb. 1.'..— During the pa.-^t 
>> eek the weather hasbeeii remarkably 
warm and sprinsHke and the parks are 
alroaily frreen with young grass, in 
strauije euntrast to the frost whieh 
vhitened the parks at the same period 
last year. 

Soeially the pi"Ospeets aie more eheer- 
ful. for it ij5 ann-viinced that the court 
leremonies which were cancelled on ac- 
i-ount of the death of Prince Henry of 
IJattenburg. are only postponed until 
after the court goes out of mourning, 
when the usual number of drawing 
r«>oms. leeves. balls and concerts will be 
held. The queen has taken this course 
owing to the representatii>ns which have 
been made to her of the great loss 
which the t!-ades people and others 
would suffer if the court ceremonies 
were abandoned. 

It is sated that her majesty intends 
to confer a dukedom upon Princess 
Beatrice, with the succession to her 
sons. Consequently it is believed that 
Pi-incess Beatrice will probably be 
created duchess of Kent, and her eldest 
son will be earl of Kssex. Princess 
Beatrice and her children arrived at 
Nice yesterday. The princess will visit 
ex- Empress Kugenie. and will take a 
short cruise in the Mediterranean on 
board the steam yacht Thistle, which 
the widowed empress has chartered 
from the duke of Hamilton for the 
season. It is understood that Princess 
Beatrice takes this trip to sea upon the 
sij^'dal advices of her physicians. 

It transpires that the first lord of the 
treasury, A. J. Balfour, the noted 
Conservative leader in the house of 
commons, who is a regular wheel rider, 
had a narrt>w escape the other day while 
IJassing through the main thoroughfare 
of Whitechapel on his wheel. Tht- 
roadway was greasy with black mud 
and Mr. Balfour's bicycle skidded and 
spilled the first lord of the treasury in- 
to about as rank a gutter as that coast- 
er part of London could produce. Mr. 
-^alfour rolled completely over in the 
fat-fnie~TntfrMLfter having been thrown 
heavily on his .sidV-T TK£^-ll<-dn«.'ii>il*\an 
athlete (his fondness for goTf piaVttr^ 
is a matter of universal note) he su( - 
• eeded in sjiringing to hivS feet just in 
time to avuid. by a little mon- than a 
liair's breadth, a fastly driven butchers 
cart, which, however, drove over and 
spoiled the cabinet minister's most 
cherislied wheel. But Mr. Balfour was 
in no way disconcerted. He laughingly 
wiped the mud from his badly bespat- 
tered face, picked up the wreck of his 
wheel, called .a four-wheeler, super- 
intended the placing of his terril>ly 
buckled machine on the roof of tin 
vehicle and calmly ordered the driver 
to go to the treasury where, not i'mp 
afterwards, .'^ as a shilling just

to the so-called autocar has been liable 
to a heavy p xulty, according to anti- 
quated IXV.P. unless it was preceded in 
the streets by a man carrjing a danger

interested himself in the cause of the 
autocars, for which he is known to have 
a decided predeiict; on. In fact only yes- 
terday, the prince of Wales was seen at 
the imperial institute engaged in making 
a personal trial of a new and highly im- 
proved autocar. The prince drove it. and 
down steep grades and seemed highly 
pleased with his work. Thjre was no

A French Ironclad Fires at the

San Francisco, Feb. 1,">. — L. Paris Lc 
Ciaire, late procureur and prosr-cuting 
fficer for the tYench government at 
I'apete. Tahiti, bring news of a serious 
.=kirmisin which took place between the 
F'Vpnch and the natives h-^fore the island 
early in January. The natives re'oeiled 
against French rule, and the British flags 
were rais-^d in the villages. 

Le Claire says a French ironclad pro- 
ceeded to the scene of the insurrection 
and bom'iarded the vUlag.^s. No troops 
wf>re landed, but there was cons^deri'jle 
firing from the ship. Guns were brou.ght 
to liear on the flagmasts from which th-^ 
British flags were flying, and flags and 
poIe:s wer levelled to the ground. There 
was no dispositon to spill blood or harm 
the natives, so no shell.s were thrrmn.

Chica.go. Feb. I."..— The new Blbl • pre- 
l>arcd for the of the public schools 
has been completed. It will now be sub- 
mitted ti« the board of cduiatlon. who 
will judgment upon it. The aim 
of those who compiled the book was to 
prepare a work that wouki be unobje;-- 
tionable to any religious denomination. 
It has now been twenty-two year.s 
since the board of education discon- 
tinued the r.-ading of the P.lble in the 
public schools in Chicago. I'p to 1S74 
it was a regularly prescribed iluty ot 
the teachers to read a portion of the 
sacred volume to their scholars every 
day. By some this was approved, but 
to others it became increasingly dis- 
tasteful. The opix)sition to it grew 
and aftei- a long and stul)bornly con- 
tested battle, the Bible was evicted 
from the public schools. A few ye».rs 
ago a movement was begun to reinstate 
the Bible in the. public schools. The 
book which has just been comi)leted 
is the outgrowth of a suggestion made 
by Professor David Swing, that a com- 
nuttee consisting of members of tlie 
Protestant. Catholic, Jewish and other 
denominations comi)ile a hook for the 
use of the school children, made u>) 
from the Bible. At the beginning II 
was decided that the version recognized 
in courts by English law when appeals 
to the Bible are made, should be the 
one from which the version should be 
taken, as the schools are established 
pre-eminnently for the state. For the 
itHivenience of the children and to bet- 
ter facilitate the work, the book is 
Riaded in its arrangement. Those se- 
lections appearing first on its pages 
are adapted to the needs and intellec- 
tual standards of the lower grades of 
the grammar .school, the latter part of 
the book being suitable for more ma- 
ture minds. 

Quotations are also .given in the book 
t;> show that men differing widely in re- 
ligious belief, ranging fr 'in Profess or 
Huxley to the pope, have endorsed just 
such a scheme as this, that has ju^^t 
been carried out.

A Well Known Southern Writer 
Passes Away. 

New Orleans. La., Feb, 1."..— Mrs. Eliza 
J. Nicholson, proprietress of the Pica- 
yune, died at 8:20 this morning. She 
was suffering from the grippe when her 
husband died a week ago. and the sad 
event so shattered her system that the 
disease developed into congestion of 
the lungs, and without strength to 
fight off the attack, she sank rapidly 
into the Hnal sleep. 

Mrs. Nicholson was born on Pearl 
river In Mississippi, and was the daugh- 
ter of Capt. J. W. Poitevant, de.scend- 
ed from a Huguenot family, still one of 
the most influential in this section. She 
was born a poet, and under the name of 
Pearl Rivers early wrote which 
made her famous. 

The work of her youth attracted the 
attention of Col. A. M. Holbrook. then 
the i)roprietor of the Picayune, who 
offered her a i>o.sition on the paper, 
which she accepted. She became his 
wife and incre;i,sed hei- mastery of the 
<letails of newspaper work, so that 
upon his d'-atli she was enabled to as- 
sume the management of the journal 
and dii-cct its i>rogress to gratifying 
success, i)ecoming one of the best 
known editors in the louniry. She as- 
sisted George Nii'hol.son. th(.i) business 
manager, in the dirtH'tion of the pi>)i)- 
erty and u|>on marriage, the (Inn be- 
came Niehol.son At <'o. She leaves two

Bills to Strengthen the System 
of Accounting. 

Washington, Fib. !.">.— Uepre:-entaiiv.' 
Dockery, of Missouri, has introduced two 
bills to further strengthen the system

One of thes.' b.lls drects all government 
officers to turn in funds within thirty 
I days from the time ot receiving them. 
At present the law requires money to b.> 
turned in within a "reas.mable time." 
and it has been found that, some govern- 
ment olflcials give a most elastic con- 
stiuction tn "reasjnaial ' time." 

Another bll! introduced oy Mr. Dockery 
provides that all d;'linqu?nt ofnccrs shall 
be reported to congress on Jan. 1 
yearly. It apiiears that the present law. 
while apparently directing these reports, 
leaves a technical loophole for avoiding

Have Men and Women Been Growing Weaker 
and Losing Vitality? 

"Men arc generally supjiosed t<> be 
the stronger and wonnn the weaker 

It was a professor connected with one 
oi our leading colleKcs who recently 
mnde this strange remark. He ex- 
plained it ill the following words: 

•But is this really Hie fact at the 
present diiy? Isn't It more true that the 
two sexes are both deteriorating in 
strength and vitality'.' We live more 
rniiid, wa-ariii;.; lives than peoph- did 
tifty years ago, and are showing th ■ 
teiiilile effects of it in health and t-un- 
viit\ition. If you doubt my words, try 
to think of how many people you hear 
I tmiplaining of tired feelings and other 
miserable symptoms that show they 
iir;i' suffering from some form of dis- 
ease. You will certainly be surprised 
to llnd how many you can remember." 

That the professor is right, and that 
These tlangeious symiitcnns are fai- 
more common than we generally sus- 
pec-t, sems to be clearly prove<l by the 
opinions of many people who speak 
fiom actual experience. The following 
Is a case hi point: 

F. W. Whiting, a protninent gentle- 
man well known in conniption with the 
telephone industry, r<HM?ntly said: 
Yes, we do live too nipidly. We suc- 
ceed and accumulate wealth, but we 
exhaust ourselves in doing it. The 
a\'erage Am* rican spends llv Iir.-:.t hiilf 
of his life in acquiring w alth and los- 
ing health, and in the last half he 
spi nds his we;ilth to regain his health. 
1 know this from my own ex|ierience. 
The pace at wldr-h I did business n -ar- 
ly killed me. A few years ago I was 
r.ervous. iri-itable and run down. I 
kngetl for life and yet did not care for 
It. I dreaded d ath. but living was un- 
desirable. What! In perfect health 
now".' Yea, I am. I saved my strength, 
used good judganent and took Warners 
Safe Cure regularly. I have found it to 
li" indispensable to my health and hai>- 
j>iness. Df) I work".' Yes, hard every day, 
and I believe all Americans can do the 
s.anie thing, regardles.s of the climate, 
comi>etition or social demands, if they 
will act upon my suggestion." 

It should be remembered that the 
great remedy .above described is not a 
new thing f)r an experiment. It is a 
scientific preparation which has sto'id 
the test of years. It is universally roo- 
ommended and prescribed by eminent 
physician.'?. There is nothin.g like it fi>r 
making weak men and worn; n strong 
and well. If >ou are in need of such a 
remedy, will you not try'it?

Interesting Scientific Experi-

St. Louis, Feb. 15. — It has i)een de-

by Dr. Roentgen te produce photographs 
of the interior .portions of the human 
■J >dy, and to photograpia ordinary ob- 
jects through opaque su'ostances, can be 

Til's is the most discovery 
tiius far made in connection with these 
Avondenul scienthJic expeiimr-nts, .ind 
will make it more valuable in every man- 
ner. By iieing aoie to focus the rajs, 
;ny org:in of the body may be 
phot ogra piled -without th? surrovmding 
tissues being shetwn. And it is tW) 
St. Louis scientists who have succeeded 
in deminstrating this fact. Dv. WeUin.g- 
ion Adams and Professor Nipher. of 
\Vashington university, have ijeen ex- 
perimenting with the Roentgen meth^id 
of pheitography. and h.ive been sucress-

sults I'.nder more t.ivor.ibie conditons^ 

Tiiey have been using a Rumkotph coil 
to generate rays, and (icisb'r tube. An 
erdinary micromaiic screw was placed 
in its wooden case and put immediately 
in front of a sensitive plrt.'^. Then the 
intense^ l)enetrating other waves, or cat- 
heuiie r.iys were produced in front cf the 
eas.'. Tlie result was that the loulber 
pe^rtion of the screw was piiotogn^phed 
on the wooden cover, but 

the flat p<3rtion failed to out- 
line on the sensitive piate. Sever.i! 
other oijjects were subjected to tile same 
test without the same result. 

The tact was established, however, by 
these exjteriments that the rays can be 
photograpined, but the shadowgraphs 
were smaller than the articles photo- 
graphed. This demonstrates that with 
the proper conditions the rays can be 
fecused on a given article nr portion of 
anatomy, and an image i)heitgraph Itad

Review of the Business Situa- 
tion During the Week. 

New York, Feb. If,. — Kradstreet's for to- 
day says: The general business situa- 
tion throughout the country does not 
meet anticipations, and except at a few 
( ities — Haltlniore and Pittsburg in the 
liast, Chicago. St. Louts and Omaha at 
the West, Oalveston. Chattanooga and 
Atlanta at the .South— remains dull for 

the season. In most instances disap- 
pointing also. Improvement in de- 
mand and prices is confined to hides. 
Iciither and biwjts and shocks, which are 
lonspieuous in the «h-ort list of staples 
for which )/rieeb are higher. 

Features of the .situation are those 
resulting from unfaveuable weather 
Kasl and In the Central West, reaction 
in in-ices of iron and steel, further com- 
plaints by woolen manufacturers and 
an outlook for more id^' woolen ma- 
chinery, a smaller total of bank deal- 
ings, continued stifTness, maintenance 
of high rates for loans not withstanding 
th'' favorable inferences drawn from 
the heavy over-subscription to the gov- 
■ •inmeut bond issues, and restrl<ted 
in'oducUem of jiig iron. 

Kxports of wheat (dour included as 
wheat) from both coasts of the Cnited 
States this week amount to 2,718.000 
bushels against 2,'J07,Of»0 bushels last 
week and as compared with 2..'i7i'.()00 
bushels in the week one year ago, 2.- 
OOn.OOO bushels in the wiH'k two years 
ago, :^. (180,000 bushels three years ago. 
and as contrasted with 4.(I42.')0'( bush- 
els in the corresponding week of lSf)2. 

The total number of business failures 
reported thre.ughout the Cnited States 
this week is 381, an exceptionally large 
number, the gain as compared with last 
week being forty-three. Most of the 
increase is explained by returns from 
the Central Wi'stern states and the Pa- 
eific coast. There .are eight> -J)ve more 
business failures this v. -ek than in the 
seeond week of February, 18;).">, ninety- 
three more than in the corresponding 
Week of lSfi4, and 176 more than in the 
si'cond week of February, 1893, while, 
as compared with the second week of 
February. 1892, this week's Increase is 


New Ye)rk, Feb. 15.— R. G. Dun & 
Co.'s weekly review of trade says: The 
weather still hinders business and con- 
tinued closeness of money and pro- 
longed inaction of eongress, but confi- 
dence in.-"reases. The production of pig 
iron, 189,567 tons weekly. Feb. 1. is 4.:; 
per cent less than Jan. 1. and S.5 per 
cent less than Nov. 1, while the unsold 
stocks including 63.1 S8 tons in January, 
showing an output much exceeding the 
present demand and moreover the 
largest stocks that for a long time are 
carried by the great steel works. Pig 
iron at the East and at Chicago has 
not advanced, iSouth^rn competition 
ontinuing at pi'ices so low that several 
.\labama furnaces have stopped, but 
Messenier is a shade lower at Pittsburg. 
Th<' demand for plates, sftots and wire 
;tai!s conlinues fairly gtKXi. and there 
are more orders for railroad cars and 
bar iron from Chica.go, but no further 
-ak-s of raibs appear, and the demand 
:"or finished proelucts keejjs but 70 per 
eent of the capacity employed. The 
eoke output is again more reduced. 
e;opj>er is a shade firmer at lO'/ie. whil- 
tin a.nd lead are not active and un- 
•hanged. The demand for boots and 
shoes is still disajjpointing, several 
factories have clos« d and few are work- 
ing full time, belief in lower jorices still 
irevailing, although further reductions 
lave been maih- iti most lines, ainount- 
ng. since Jan. 1. to 6 per cent. Some 
iiakers get orders for women's light 
■ihoes. but others scarci-ly any. and 
Be>ston shii>ments thus far are 21 per 
•ent less than last year. Textile work 
shows little change, though the cut in 
!>rint cloths to 2.27 cents, and a general 
•oneession in bro\Mi and bleached 
staples, avei-aging for the whole list 
quoted 6 per cent since Jan. 1. induced 
niore Inlying, which the known accumu- 
lation eif gofids ahead of demand has 
hindereei. iMan.v mills are reporting 
great profits last year from the i ise 
in cotton, l>ut the prosi)ect of a larger 
.•rop this year eleies not promise repe- 
tition of such gains. Though gewds 
siill average 12.7 per cent above theii 
lowest point last year, cotton is now 
11 per cent higher than it was then. 
-Sales of wool have been small for tveo 
weeks of February. 9,320,700 jxmnds 
against 10,26O,,-i50 last year and 12. ■'^02.- 
'>50 in 1S93, but higiier prices abroad sus- 
tained by heavy shipments of goods 
to this country, incline holders of wool 
here to make no concessions, so that 
;nanufaeturers have the more difficulty 
in meeting competition. Many cancella- 
tions of orders for clay worsteds and 
mixtures are reported since the reduc- 
tion in prices. Clothiers who have still 
to carry large unsold stocks of dealers, 
as well as their ow n. defer orders. 

Prenluce markets tend downward, 
mainly because supplies exceed expec- 
tattons. Wheat has eleclined % cents 
with We^stern receipts 3.022.306 bushels 
against S7.").199 lasJt year, while Atlan- 
tie' exports for tveo weeks have been 
■>nly :!.6:59.19r> bushels against 2.721.344 
last year. Corn is a shade lower .ami 
Ivoth pork anel lard a little lower. Cot- 
ton receipts, at this season never 
large still, inelicate a supply for the 
urrent ( fop year. incltiding stocks 
orotij::ht over, much in excess of the 
world's needs, sei that the prosju-ct of

A Leading Church iVIember 
Accused of Wurder. 

Louisville. Feb. 15, — A spendal to the 
Courier-Journal from Mobile.. Ala., 
says: A sensatimi has been causLvl 
here by the arrest of Henry David 
Hearn. a leading light in the Baptist 
( hureh. who is aee'used of causing the 
.death tif his wife by the administration 
of nitric acid which he had obtaine^d 
from a loial physician for alleged an- 
iil.Ntie'al purijoses. 

The arrest was made upon the in- 
formation of the accused's ste|)daugh- 
ter. who .illegv's that an ante-mortem 
statement or the deceast^d woman, who 
died sudiienlv in convulsiems. attrib- 
uted the I ause of death to poisoning at 
her husband's hanii,^. Hearn denies 
that he administered the poi.-son to his 
wife. Apinmranees are against him, 
however, as besides his wife'.s dying 
statement, all the contents of a 2-ounce 
ben tie of nitric acid are missing. 

There have been unpleasant rela- 
tions between Hearn and his family 
ever since they ch,irged him sonietime 
ago with making a proposition t" hi,- 
:di ndaturhter to marry him in the 
event of her mother's death. The police

For the Tobacco Habit

Whenever Baeo-Curo. that well-es- 
tablished and famous remedy for curing 
the tobacco habit in all its lorms, comes 
into eoin|»etition with other remedies it 
is given preference. The reawm in 
plain. Baco-Cuixj is recr>gnized by the 
medical profession as th" only s.-ientific. 
vegetable; and harmless cuiv. It is not 
guilty of the absurdity of insisting that 
the user of tobacco stop of his own will 
and th'U take the remedy. If he can 
stop why bother with a remedy at all? 
The fact that Baeo-Curo is a cure not a 
substitute was clearly brought out by 
that learned jurist, Romanzo liunn. i'. 
S. circuit judge. Wisconsin, in a lengthy 
decision, tiled in Madison. Wis.. Nov. 
2"i. 1S95. in favor Eaco-Curo, in a suit 
alleging imitation. 


The following is a verbatim extract 
from that decision: 

■ The comr'lainanfs (No-to-bac) Iai)d 
admonishes the purehaser that he must 
immediately discontinue the of to- 
bacco. The defendant's (Baeo-Curo) 
label in a large and conspicuous h»-ad- 
ing .says; Don't slop tobacco -when you 
begin taking a cure. And don't be im- 
posed upon by buying a remedy that re- 
ejuires you to do so?' There are many 
other distinguishing differences." 

Baco-Cur-j was the P, to give an 
it on-elad w ritten guarantee to cure the 
tobaeco habit, in any form, or to refund 
the money with 10 per cent interest. 

By cjualifying the number of Baco- 
<'uro tablets taken, according to plain 
directions enclosed in each Ijox. the user 
etf tobacco who does not wish to stop en- 
tirely, can restrict himself, without 
trouble, in the am.ount of the weed usee* 
and at the same time receive the full 
tonic benefits of the medicine and have 
the narcotic poison removed from his

•I do noti t>ciieve thjt the fears of the

opini.ia is that the West Duluth offlce 
would be made a sub-station of the Du- 
luth omoe. but wvuld in no other Avav 
lusc its identity. The postmaster wou'd 
become the superintendent of the sub- 
staticn. All West Duiuch mail would 
be sent direct to the sub-station and 
would be delivered from the;v. sj then- 
would be no delay. The money order 
and re.?;stry ofTics would continue as at 
present, and the same Sunday serv'c^ 
would b3 given. The sub-station would 
be under the Duiuth office, and would re- 
port its receipts ther?. but otherwise there 
wouid be no change. 

"In other cities the establisiiment of 
sub-stations has generally been followed 
by ihe s?curingr of better postoffice quar-

made one the government would then 
lease the postoffice quarters instead of 
the postmaster doing it."

Lively Meeting of Sheet 
and Cornice Workers. 


Detroit. Feb. l.-..-After six days of 
constantly wrangling over proposed 
.-amendments to the constitution, the na- 
tii nul convention ,jf Sheet Iron and 
Cf rni'c Workers' adjourned today 
v.ifh<»ut having elected officers. The 
pns.s committee refused to give out in- 
fon:;a I ion. 

The propo.sition to alx.lish the excru- 
tive r-oinmittc' and make the iiatiMnai 
nfficris a board of control, met defeat 
this morning. Aluch <ff the forenoon 
was given up to the trial of an officer 
of the Chicago union on charge.s pre- 
ferred in the convention. The r?sult of 
the trial ia withheld. During the trial 
they nearly came to blows. < 

in a fog while a hunting i>arty of the 
natives were on it. The natives could 
not see the steamer Vega owing to the 
fog. but hearing the churning of the 
screw, they were stricken in terror, 
put out their camp fires, and hid them- 
selves in the ice. and not till months 
after were they finally wormed out of 
the ice by a half-breed who had been 
fortunate enough to have once seen a 
steam vessel. 

New York. Feb. 15.— Judge Charles 
P. Daly, president of the American Geo- 
graphical .society, when shown the .As- 
sociated Press dispatch from London 
today regarding Dr. Nansen's return 
:rom the North pole said to a reporter: 
This is rather better than the first 
account we had. It is a remarkable cir- 
'umstance that the news should come 
Siom these two jilaces. but coniing from 
in.>ints so widely sei>arate as a'-e Anrh- 
;ingel and Irkutsk, is rather in favor of 
the news being true. I shall want 
.some further information vet. before 
accepting the report. I have alwavs 
■ •elieved the pide would be reached some 
day and for n would say, that 
his project presented everything that 
was as likely to su(( eed as anv other 
though it wa.s somewhat 
But I canot understand how he happen^: 
to be returning in this way. If he had 
.selected thi- course he intended follow- 
ing, the current thai carried fh'- drift 
Irom the Jeanetto. the exoectation wa.s 
that it would bring him out between 
.'^Pitzbergen and East Greenland an<l 
the first news of him should 
reach from Hammerfest." 

ero.l that nobody was following tht m 
and in their erforts to do. I purcha>^ers for 
what they had bought, the price tumbled 
back a.-i rapidly as it bad risen. 

May opened on the l_»uluth board 'ic 
lower at tiSV^c and in a tew minutes 
dropped to r.3c. Then it developed some 
strength and shot up to »i3-»ac. but ipiicklv 
began to ilecline and went down steadily 
to (!2a,c. There was active demand by the 
elevators and shippers for wheat to ar- 
rive and the price a<lvanced >..c. There 
was not much wheat for sale," however, 
and purchasers hail 10 be satisfied with 
;i!',(;Oi) bus. for which thev paid 2'i.e under 
the May i)rice. The mill's were iTol bid- 
tling. owing to the advanced price. Two 
lots amounting to 3(Ki,0i)tl bus were worked 
yesterday for March delivery at 2c un- 
der May. anil it is predicted that wheat to 
arrive for immediate dellverv will be sell- 
ing next week at 2c under :Mav. A New 
Vork dispatch this morning said: 'No. 2 
red winter wheat in New Vork is very 
scarce. A lot was sold todav at i:? e^nts 
over the May price. The supply here is 
only ISJI.OOO bus. all praclieallv held by one 
concern. There was also a deman.l for 
wbfat today from Peru, a source never 
I'-foiv beard from as a buyer of wheat 
in ttiis market." Wheat closed on the Du- 
luth board -Vc higher than yesterday for

this morning says: A letter from Lord 
Dunrave:i in reference to the D?fcnder- 
Valkyrio eplsodo Is expected to reach 
hero today '^r t<'itiorrow. A rumor is 
floating around tow.i to the effect that 
tho exoect-'d document will consist of 
the resignation from the New York

The N'irili Dakota pulilital corres- 
pondent of the Minneapolis Journal 
says: "That there is a very sharp knife 
out for the f;r(?at Northern road among 
newspaper men of the state Is evidenced 
by the unanimity with which they arc 
pitching into Jim Hill atul his line. 
Of course, it has all come since they 
were face to face with the fact that 
no more transportation on that line 
would be given for adverti.sing. In 
this connection It Is estimated that over 
lO.WMi.OOO bushels of grain has in the 
last few months been carried across 
the tracks of the Great -Northern road 
by fanners who were anxious to ship 
over the Northern Pacific, as an evi- 
dence of appreciation of the latter's 
generous policy. Jit 1« now stated that 
an overland ft-.-ight line has l^een or- 
ganized to carry freight from Leeds and 
jioints near by on the Great Northern 
to the Northern Pacifh-, the idea being 
not only to carry wheat to Leefls, but 
to take merchandise back. The news- 
papers may be expected to aid in this 
crusade to their full power." 

It is stated that a similar p<dlcy is 
being pursued by President Hill to- 
wards the newspapers In Minnesota 
which had thi- audacity to oppose his 
consolidation schenu-. which would 
have created a ralln>ad monopoly of 
a most dangerous character and v.oiiid 
have inllicted .serious damage u|ton tlic 
entire Northwestern country which 
now i-njoys the benefits of railroad 
totiipftjtion. The Uerulcl wua one of 

A number of peopleoutsitleoflheSixtli 
district, aided by the Minneapolis Jour- 
nal and an evening paper In Duluth, 
are endeavoring to i-reate dissension 
because of Mr. Towne's opposition to 
the single gold standard. So far they 
have not met with any .success, but it is 
well that Air. Towne's friends should 
be on their guard against the methods 
which are l>eing adopted to stab him 
in the back. It is particularly annoy- 
ing that his enemies among the Twin 
City politicians, who are working hand 
in glove u ith Banker Merriam in behalf 
of gold monometallism, should be as- 
sisted l«y a L^uluth pai>er in thecowardly 
campaign that they have started 
against Mr. Towne. The people of Du- 
luth, as well as the whole Sixth district, 
are pn>ud of their congressman and 
they rejoiced when he scored such a 
splendid triumph in the house of repre- 
sentatives and jumped at one bound 
into a place of influence that It usually 
takes a new member at least several 
years of service to obtain. 

There Is no op{H>sition to Mr. Towne 
among the Republic-ans residing In Du- 
luth. One of the warmest notes of 
congratulation forwarded to Mr. 
Towne, the day after he attained na- 
tional fame by his speech in congress, 
was from the staunch Republican who 
opix^sed him in the Republican primar- 
ies of St. Louis county nearly two yciii"s 
ago. While he does not agree with .Mr. 
Towne's views on the money question, 
he felt proud that Mr. Towne had 
achieved such a triumph, because he 
recognized that by so doing he haa 
placed himself in a position to wield an 
intluence that will be of great benefit 
to Duluth and the rest of the district. 
Neither this gentleman nor his friends 
have any intention of making war upon 
Mr. Towne, but will be found among 
his supporters for a renomination, when 
the proper time comes. 

It is also untrue to .say that there 
is a concerted movement in any other 
part of the district to retire Mr. Towne. 
There is not anywhere in the Sixth dis- 
trict today a single candidate against 
Mr. Towne for the Republican nomina- 
tion. He has a clear field at this date. 
The attempt to drag the name of Hon. 
William E. Lee into any fight <tf this 
character is without his consent. Mr. 
Lee has said he is not a candidate. Of 
course he would accei>t the nomination, 
if it were tendered to him. What Re- 
publican would not? But Mr. Lee Is 
more likely to be the Republican nom- 
inee for governor this year instead of 
for congress. There is a strong senti- 
ment in the western end of the dlstrivt 
in favor of Mr.Lee for :;overnor.and ite 
has many friends in D'.iuth who would 
turn out and hustle for him if ho should 
enter the race. 

The Sixth district is well satisfied 
with Mr. Towne's course. His speech 
In congress was as conservative as it 
was able. The amendment which Mr. 
Towne offered to the senate substitute 
for the bond bill provided for Interna- 
tional free coinage at a ratio of Ij'/a to 
1, the law which he proposed to go into 
effect when similar laws were passed 
by France and Germany. T^pon this 
amendment, which the only one 
offered by Mr. Towne, twenty-seven 
Republicans voted with him. including 
members from New Hampshire and 
Pennsylvania. There is no doubt that 
other Republican members would have 
voted with .Mr. Towne. had not Mr. 
Dingley, chairman of the ways and 
means committee, stated, previous to 
the vote, that the Republican leaders 
would consider legislation of this char- 
acter later in the session, to be em- 
bodied in a separate bill. Referring 
to the report that such an amendment 
was t<j be introduced by Mr. Towne, 
the last i,ssue of the Elk River Star- 
News, the leading Republican paper of 
Sherburne county, said: "On that i)lat- 
form he will meet with no serious op- 
position to a re-elec;tlon. It will be re- 
meinljered that the Star-News ex- 
pressed practically similar views some 
months ago. " There is no Republican 
|)aper in the district which can or will 
say aught against Mr. Towne's propo- 
sition, because it is soimd Republican 

Neither the goldbug politicians and 
ni'wspapei-s of the Twin Cities, nor 
their assistant in Dulutli. which happi- 
ly has very little Influence, will succeed 
in cau.sing any ,serious oi)position to .Mr. 
Towne's renomination. 

your representative, Mr. Towne. He Is 
an excellent man, and I want to say 
to you that he delivered the best speech 
on the silver question heard in this

question In the house. Mr. Crisp, ex- 
speaker, and .several others have made

fact that they have such a repivsenta-

Among the twenty-seven Republicans 
who V'/ted with Mr. Towne in favor of 
this ameiidment wr?' Baker, New 
Ham-^shirc; Brumm, Pennsylvania; 
Doolittle and Ellis, Oro<gon; Hartman, 
Montana; Pickler, Soutli Dakota; Sha- 
forth, Colo;-ado; Blue, Kansas; Baker,; Settle and Heaa-son, North Ca.-- 
olina; all of the California delegation 
present, and two fi-om Tennesse^e, In an- 
swer tc^ a direct question by Mr. Towne, 
it was intimated by Chairman Dingley, 
of thv ways and m7ans committee, that 
th • R<^nublican leador.s would consider 
legislation of this characte.- later in the 
session, as a separate measure. It will 
be seen, by a careful rc'ading of the 
amendment, that it is in st;ict accord 
with the flnanclal olank of the Republi- 
can national platform, and it is not im- 
probabl? that it may b- adopted by 
cmgross during the p -esent session as a 
ha-^.py sisluticn of the vexed question. 
Similar bills a.-.' to be introduced in the

The attention of the distinguished 
and numerous editors of the morning

newspaper is vacant. The .salary is only

might increase it. 

With William E. Lee in the race for 
the Republican nomination for govern-

The committee of one hundred on mu- 
nicipal reform, which has begun work 
in Chicago, has a big eon tract to per- 
form. If it succeeds in reforming mu- 
nicipal politics in Chicago, the day of 
miracles has not imssed away. 

Mr. Lee's home paper say.sjio is not a 
cjindldate for congress, but thei-i; is 
little doubt that he would not object to 
l»e elected governor. And the Republi- 
cans could not do better than nominate 
him for that ofiice.

the credit of getting John Hayes Ham-

"The February born shall find 
Since- ity and peace of mind, 

I'ri'edom f:-(,iTi passion and from care, 
If th*-y an amethyst will wear," 

February's maiden wears an amethyst 
for luck, and her flower is the r'f'nircjfie, 
m St extiulsitely d.dicate, and daintiest 
«»f bl-Assjins. The ttmetliy.«jt can hardly 
be called a precious stone, for it is 
neither costly or rare, but it is certainly 
beautiful, and In combination with other 
stones, is sometim<s cha.mingly ar- 
ranged. Not long since I saw Bvime verv 
bi-autlful amelhyK"t violets, with dia- 
mond c< nters. and a tjansy which was a 
triumr)h (,f the Jeweler's art. Both oearls 
and diamonds were used in the pansy 
and differently tinted amethysts. Of 
curs., th ' tniler shades are mo.e beauti- 
ful than of a deeper tint. If one 
has a love .;f soft purrjles In colo.-. these 
stones can be very prettily used as ac- 
ce.s.wries of dress. Some c>f the most 
beautiful new buckles are mad'.^ of am-, 
ethyst.s H.'i in gold, and are to be wo.-.i 
with gowns of violet shades. They are 
exl.- -mely i-rftty for dr^^^ses to be worn 
in the hnrnd light of day, as the nu.-plo 
stones are like sa!)!)hires. They abscirb 
all the light and :v.flect very little at 
night. Still should one hQ February 
bojn anil superstitious, one must wear 
an amethy.=!t if one wishes to have that 
freedom fmm the ca.-king care which 
brings wrinkles, gray hai-.-s, lines on 
cheek and brow, and the hunted Icjok of 
worry. And what wc*nan who values 
peace of mind and g',od looks will not 
bow to a sui)erstition which will insure 
her that freedom?

We have had an opportunity lately to 
feast our eyes with color in strangely 
beautiful and harmonious combinations 
—Oriental rug.s. What w- man doi-s not 
admire and covet these wonderful speci- 
mens of handiwork? and wonderful they 
are mo.o than b ■autiful sometimc^s. 
Some of the silky antique rugs are per- 
fect '.iciures, and worthy of a iMace upon 
the walls as tapestry hanging.s. Some of 
the prayer rugs that cune into our mar- 
kets are not only beautiful, but bear a 
sad little rememb.-ance with them. 
•Many of them have nerha*>s been used 
to cover the ma.ble floor of that most 
wonderful of all t.mples of worship — 
San Sofia, In Con.=ttantinonle. The.-e is 
no more interesting piece of architecture 
in the wo. -Id, both from a religious aid 
ii>mantic stand; oint; during the winter 
the floors are covered with the finest 
and* most beautiful prayer rugs that 
c-ome intcj the Eastern market. As .soon 
as thc>se show signs of dust '.r wear they 
find ther- way into the bazars and are 
•agerly seized by bargai.i hunters. An 
anti(iue rug, we.e it to speak, could tell 
many a thrilling tale. The very finest 
a-id incjst perfect rugs come from Af- 
ghanistan, and the Persian rugs with 
the sultan's mark tell definitely the ago 
lo ihe learned.

Last week we had a little talk "over 
the tea cups" of Valentines, and my 
Visitor told me of the latest fad of the 
collector. The Valentine collection must 
embrace mamas and grandmamas as 
well as one's own. Tho.=e tender little 
missives which were written 100 year.*? 
ago in ink, now faded and brown with 
age, folded and sealed with a wafer and 
sent forth by a trembling lover will hold 
an honored place in the collection. The 
ancient lace oaper one will help to trace 
the history of the decorative in a;t, and 
then down to the modern Anbrsy 
Beardsley sketches which are more like 
t-'oste.'s than anything else. A valentine 
collpction would be far more interesting 
than a 'postage stam i set, because of the 
touch of romance and sentimentality it 
be:di-s. They mighl bt- ciuite as interesting 
i.T tracing a life history, as a c >llect:on 
of sc rans from old gowns, or a bundle of 
<dd love letters, and I can fancy nothing 
more pleasing than the latter. 

Now a days one must be a collector or 
be out of the fashion, and some one sen- 
sibly says one might as well be dead as 
lie out of the fashion. If it is not fans 
or shoes, or posttage stam;'?. or coins, or 
aut^'gra^hs. it is old china, books, rugs, 
I- valentines. These are th > things that 
add zest to life or charm the wise, for 
thjy hell us to keen in touch with the 
world and life, and th?;-c is nothing so 
healthy and wholesome as enthusiasm. 
It d?*ives away morbidness, it sweetens 
the natures, it 'eromotes activity and is 
good mentally, morally and ^^hysically.

with them, but the -e are othe.-s of the 
slashing dashing style, which are neither

artistic bel'>ngings. Of course the orig- 
inal idea of the rxisters is t'> catch the 
"yc» and hold the attention, even though 
it be fo.- c>ne fleeting second, and in that 
light anything that does that i.s artis- 
tic in the '.oster sense. The Century 
magazine nublishes a post' r by Gra.sset, 
of Paris, in November, '94. to advertise 
the beginning of its "Life of Nai^oleon." 
This attracted attention and another 
by (Jrasset was nublished the fellowi!:g 
June. Then they offered large ...izes for 
the three best designs for posters to ren- 
resent Natjolem at sr.m'^ stage of his

I am temptrd to quote to you a little 
girl's crimposition Ln connection with the 
busy woman, the Mcidern Woman, whose 
h.inds are so full and who has little time 
for rest: 

"Boys are men that have not got as 
big as their, and girls are women 
that will be ladies by and bye. Man 
was made before woman. When God 
made Adam, he said to Himself. 'Well. 
I think I can do better if I try again.' 
And He made Eve. Boys are a trouble. 
They wear out everything but soap. If 
I had my way the world would be girls 
and the rest dolls. iMy papa is so nice 
that I think he must have been a little 
girl when he was a little ixiy. Man was 
made, and on the seventh day he rested. 
W'oman was then made, and she has 
never rested since." 

Truly this young mind which origin- 
ated this delicious specimen of literary 
worth must have been associating with 
a spinster aunt who had "new" ideas. 
It is unique in its way and strangely

This week gave us the anniversary of 
the birth of Lincoln. Each year that we 
grow older we seem to realize more 
strongly the unique and wonderful per- 
sonality of the man. So strangely path- 
etic and sad is his face in all of his por- 
traits that erne must believe that the pre- 
science of the disasters of his life were 
stamped upon it. With all of the 
nobility, the grandeur, the mental power 
and strength of the man, there -w-as the 
simplicity which is strength, and Avhich. 
highly developed, makes power. Set aside 
any conception one may h.ave of him as 
a, and read his speeches. Every- 
one of them, wonderful, and fine and 
perfect. No traini^d scholar, filled with 
erudition and an inheritance of culture, 
has ever rivaled in vigor, strength, 
power or oratory the utterances of this 
rude son of the "people, who carved out 
his own fortune. If he never wrote, or 
said anything but his speech at Gettys- 
buig. that alone is sufTicient to give him 
undying fame and honor. "It sprang 
like the strophes of old out of a chast- 
ened heart, almost broken with its 
weight of conquest, but still dauntless in 
its American faith; and the man who 
spoke the words was for the moment 
transfigured for us, and his furrowed 
face and guant form took on the light 
that never was on land or sea. so that 
he bi^came the archetype of the people, 
uttering b?tter than he knew the great 
prayer of that finer ;ind bettrr human- 
ity that our fathers and we believed 
to" come with liberty and equality out of 
storm and stress and an unshaken con- 
fidence in man." Every w.^man who is 
a true .American fee!s the thrill of pride 
in his gieatne.'y'. while she bows before

Whether as maid or wife. 
No drof" would be half as pleasant 

In the mingled draught of life. 

But the sweetheart has smiles and blushes 
When the wife htts frowns and sighs. 

And the wife's have a wrathful gliltf^r 
F&r the glory of the sweetheart's eyes. 

If lovers were lovers always. 

The same to sweetheart a;id wife. 
Who would change for a future of Eden 

The Joy of this checkered life? 

But husbands grow grave and silent. 

And care on the anxious brow 
Oft replaces the sunshine that perished 

With the words of the marriage vow. 

Happy is he whose sweelh« art 

Is wife and sweetheart stiii: 
Whose voice, as of old, can charm him; 

Whose kiss, as of old, can thrill; 

Who has plucked the rose to find ever 
Its beauty and fragrance increase. 

As the flush of passion is mellowed 
In love's unmeasured peace; 

Who .sees in the step a lightness; 

Who finds in the form a grace; 
Who reads an unaltered brightness 

In the witchery of the face. 

Undimmed and unchanged. .\h, happy 
Is he crowned with such a life! 

Who drinks the wife pledging the sweet-

The call for the Republican state con- 
vention to meet at Minneapolis on 
March 24 draws attention to the fact 
that the call for the Sixth district con- 
vention must soon be issued. This con- 
vention must meet not later than -March 
22, which would necesistate holding th^^ 
St. Ijouis county primaries about March 
17 and the convention about .Manh 20, 
The call for the county convention must 
therefore be issued not later than Feb- 
ruar.v 2'). 

Chairman Daugherly, of the Sixth 
district committee, is expected to reach 
here this evening ami will no doubt 
call a meeting of his committee at 
once to .select the time an<l jdace for 
holding the district conventi.m and 
agree upon the apportionment. This 
action will be followed by a meeting 
of the St. Louis county cr.niinittee to 
call the convention to select delegates 
to both the state and district conven-

The lejvirt --f Assignee Monroe Nichols 
ot ye.-^tei-day's sale of the Howard *c 
Haynie stock came before Judge Morris 
i:> s-pt-cia! term this morning, and .il- 
thiiu.u'a th-re weie some slight objections 
and the court's appi>>val of the .sale .if 
the slock, fixtures and leases to D. M. 
H-.Hl.ges w.'.s put .iff until Monday, it will 
probably be approved then. 

Assignee .Nichols' rei)ort was tiist. 
It was ela'; >rati?. and it described in de- 
tail the manner of conducting the sain, 
and gave the n imes ol all of those who 
were present. He reported that he did 
11, )t know wli,) the four higiitest bidders, 
l.owenth.ii. Storm. Ruodes and Hodges, 
were, but Hodges had put up a certified 
check, .tnd as his was the highest of the 
two who put up the required checks, lie 
t'r-.ought the ssie . f the goods to him 
should be co-.ifirmed. T. J. Davies 
argued on this iine for a time, and then 
H. S. Mahon. the only attorney who 
had any objections to offer, was given 
:'.n opportunity to be heaid. 


•l know little about the matter." sai.i 
he, "but it appears that the thre»< higiiest 
b-dders were not represented at the sale 
in any way. and that they had no notice 
ot the demand for a certified check of 10 
per cent of the bid. John A. Storm is 
the iiighest bidder, and he should be 
.iwaided the stock and fixtures. If he 
(• ntld be found he could probably be 
compelled to back up his hid." 

Mr. Mahun thought that the matter 
sh.iukl be kpt opien at least until an 
effort had been mad? to uncover the 
identity of the higher bidders. There 
was a difference of $.^000 between Storms" 
bid and Hodges', and he thought 
was worth the estates while. 

Assignee Nichols was placed upon the 
st.ind and gave testimony corroborative 
ot the report. The four highest bids, he 
said, were received through the mail, as 
•>vei-e some of the oiheis. and they were 
all datetl Duluth. He knew nothing about 
any ,)f them except Lowenthal. whom 
he underst.xxl was a merchant in 
Rochester. N. Y. 

'Mr. Mahon th'-n ask.-d: -'Who is D. 
M. Hodges?" 

•I do not know." replied ,Mi-. Nichols. 

-■VVh<i represented him'.'" 

■\\'. B. Phelps handed me his ciieck." 

• Will vou let me see it?" 

The check was protluced. and Mr. 
.Mah.n stated that it was signed by 
How.nd & Patterson, payable to Mr. 
Phelps and was end.r.sed by him to the 

Mr. Nichols testified to the fact that 
these bidders Avere all unknown to him. 
His attention being called to it. he no- 
ticed that all were pra: ticaP.y in the 
same form, namely, that the bids were 
for -stfick. fixtures and leases." The 
only other bid just like that was John 
Ci. Howard's and P. T. Kavanagh. of 
St. Paul, had a bid that was somewhat 

Judge Morris remarked that the next 
time he oidered a sale it would be 
open, and everyone would know w ho the 
bidders were. He asked Mr. Mahon if 
theie was any claim that Mr. Hodge's 
bid was inadequate. 


• Not exactly that. '" replied Mr. 
Mahon. but if it could be shown that 
all these four bids w eie another name 
for Howard & Patterson, ^n• some other 
party, there might be a possibility of 
holding them to their highest bid. which 
would mean a better price for the 
gfjuds. We do not charge thai they 
aie. but if it could be shown it would 
hv to the advantage of the creditors. ' 

Juilge Morris wished to hear from 
lompetent people w hethej- the t<^i<e was 
adequate, so affidavits w ill be presented 
.Monday from merchants who have ex- 
amined the stock. I'nless good 
to the contrary is shown In the moan- 
time, the .sale will be confirmed at that

liim off the tiesl'.e and he fell iweniy- 
five feet to the ground. He sustained a

probably prove fatal. A strange coin-

the Early Days. 



party cimsistlng of 
of whom lives in 

two attorneys. 
Duluth today, 
were traveling 

a newspaper man 
East from (Imaha over one of the great 
tiascontinental lines recently. They 
had boarded the train at varlou.s 
points Jurinjr the night, and as the first 
rays of the sun were glancing over the 
rolling prairie, had met in the dining 
car for breakfast. The usual greetings 
over our travelers fell to discussing 
the bountiful breakfast set before 
them, the c-onversation drifted to per- 
s«.nal matters, a turn that placed the 
newspaper man somewhat out of it. for 
he was a comparative stranger to the 

A new and more Interesting tendency 
was given to the intercour.^e by the ap- 
proach of a gentlemean somewhat past 
th.- prime of life, but whose quick, 
glancing eye and .smiling face be- 
tokened a heart still young. The news- 
paper man had met the new arrival 
before, as had one of his fellow tra- 
velers, and he was knoAvn to the oth?r 
by name as he Is to many others. Dull 
care and ennui incontineiitly fly where 
the luminous face of Col. R. looms 

of the peace, a well-meaning aiiun, but 
Imiorant of law. but I trusted that the 
I'lvstige of my ollicc of county attorni-y 
would hold him <bnvn. At the ap!K)lnted 
hour 1 appeared, having driven out 
from town. 1 was a little lat.- and 
fi'Uiul the court waiting for me. I had a 
clear case against Jakes client and I 
ihuckled to think of Jake's approach- 
itig discomtllurc. The yountt country 
bloods wt re present from all arouml. 
and th.- new JustUe was perihed up 
as dignified as a t'hinese joss. 

• 1 was speaking to the complainant, 
preparatory to putting him on the 
stanil. when I heard Jake's voice ad- 
dressing the court. What could he be 
doing addressing the court at this tinu . 
" Mr. Chairman.' Jake was sayina:, 
while I stood paralyzed with astonlsh- 
nunt. as you are. under the law the 
presidin.g otflcer of the meeting—' He 
pau.s-ed. The justice nodcftni affirmative- 
1>. And have the <'ondiuting of af- 
fairs.' Jake proceeded, f will ask you 
if you are ready to the question'." 

" 1 am sir. " answered the sapiefit 
justice, looking about in a pen>le.\ed 
way. evidently hunting for the ques- 

" 'Great Cae.sar.' I thought, 'am I 
dreaming i>r crazy, or have I broken 
int^> a debating society.' 1 gaz.-d 
amund. The room was filled with in- 
terested spectators, who stood on th^"" 
desks, for the justice held his court in 
a school room, and craned their necks 
over each other's shoulders. 

" Then I move you. Mr. Chairman, 
that the prisoner be di.scharged.' 

" 'Your h(mor.' said I. recovering my 
senses and jumping to my feet, 'this is 

an UH'heard of ' 

" 'Silence.' roared the justice, a.s he 
calmly open^ed Roberts' "Rules of Or- 
der" and inspected it with a heavy ju- 
dicial air. He found what he wanted 
and put the cjuestlon.' 

' All in favor of the motion say aye." 
"The young bloods, whose numbers I 
had noticed, all yelled 'aye' with a 
mighty voice, and, while the scene 
swam before my eyes, the justice de- 
clared the accused discharged and his 
friends bore him off in triumph. Jake 
had scored another victory: He had 
stuffed the justice full of ballmtn juice, 
packeil the school hou,se with the de- 
fendant's friends and worked his 
scheme like a charm. 

"Of course, a word to the defendants 
bondsmen was sullicient. and he aji- 
peared and was tried in regular form 
the next daj . 1 meanwhile having in- 
structed the ntw justice as to the dif- 
ference between the debating society 
over which he had been wont to pre- 
side and a court of justice, albeit a 
justice court. But it was a long time 
before I heard the last of it." 

The parly adjourned to the smoking 
room by this time, and the laugh being 
over as the colonel wound up the stoiy 

above the social horizon and his face 
was more bi^aming than u.«5ual. for. in 
addition to the genial influences of the 
morning, he was even now returning 
victorious from a battle of legal giants 

in the federal court at T . The 

fragrant mo<ha did In no wise dull his 
spirits, oith-r, and he was soon, as al- 
ways, the leading spirit and the young- 
est of the jiarty. 

After going over with his fellow law- 
yer a few technical matters raised by 
the question he had been engaged in, 
the colonel squinted his eye out of the 
window as the train whirle<l by the 
burr oak openings, and remarkecl that 
the state through which they were 
passing was the seene of his early 
triumphs, what few he had had, he 
mcMJestly added, and of his early dis- 

"We will pass through M short- 
ly." he said, and I wonder If Jake 

S is there yet? Jake and I used to 

try dog cases together when Jake was 
somewhat young and sappy and I was 
young and sa»>!)ier still. Jake wasn't 
much of a student, but he was a 
hustler, while I had always l>r»we<l like 
a gr»od one. ber-au.'^e I early l>;'came con- 
vinced that whatever I got would have 
to be by hard work. 1 usvd to prime 
ur> on all possible phases of questions 
I had to try. and train like a prize 
fighter, while Jake would mcjnkey 
around playing billiards until Just be- 
fore the trial an-l then he w.>uld be seen 
standing around log rolling with the 
pane! of jun)rs and trading plugs w 1th 
them. He was an impc^rsonaior in a way 
and w hen he got his hat on the back of 
his head, one trouser leg 1 aught over 
his Itoot strap and kind of chewing and 
mouthing a broom splint in a listless 
way. he t'X)k with the grangers im- 
mense. And he'd always get a verdict 
If there w'as any show of it. 

"Finally I had a case against the son 
of a man who rented a farm Jake 
owned a half interest in ami. of course, 
Jake def(-nded him. It was for a mis- 
d in'anor. assault and battery, and I 
apj>eared for the state. The case was to 
be tried before a newly-elected justice 

on himself, the talk again ran on dry 
technicalities for awhile. The colunci.

Some Pieces of Delft Which 

Are World-Famous and 


First Delft Fad Sprang Up 

Over Three Hundered 

Years Ago. 

Human nature dt^arly loves a fad, ;;nd 
the shorter its duration the better, says 
the New York Recorder. Hence, toward 
the end of thp century the supply of fads 
is apt to run short, and often the "latest 
fad" is only an eld, old fashion brought to 
light, shaken and dusted and re-estab- 
lished on the i>edestal of popular favor. 
Beautiful curios are no longer collected 

i b.?cause of their Intrinsic value, but to 
gratify the prevailing whim of the season. 

I A variety of china that is the mge one

ngroom the next. Quaint old will.Dwware

seen their best days. The exquisite beaulv 
cf Dresden could not hold the tickle heart 
of the society eirl, and Japanese and 
Chinese cuis and saucers are relegat"ii, 
regardless of political distinction, to th-- 
library cabinet. The tea table of this 
season is decorated solely with Delft— heir- 
looms if possible— but Delft, old end n-.^w, 
has superseded in popularity every other 

It is just 350 years since Delft was first 
the fail— a f:id that lasted then for years, 
and .spread throughout I'^urope, Knglund 
and eve:) the East and West Indies. 

Krom ti'niote limes the town of Delft. 
:ii Holland, had b^-en the most important 
s'.^at of pv)t!.eri".« in Kurcpc: hut tlie ware 

lar deep blue. In 175<l Perl Nl.seer's delft 
pottery was actually famous for the bril- 
liancy and variety of its coloring. Van 
Dornmelaer. in the beninning of the eigh- 
teenth century, painted not only land- 
scapes, but dragons and butterflies in red. 
gold and yellow. The famous Ter Fehii 
adhered strictly to the blue and while ef- 
fects of the earliest models, as did the 
great Dutc* painter, Jan Afselyn, but T!r 
Timpele.'i painted wonderful marine scen-s 
ia greens an<i blues. 
I rhe great artists of those days did not 
I consider it beneath their genius to decx>r- 
ate china. Beautiful samples of the 
work of the great landscape painter, Ab- 
raham VerLoom, can be found in collee- 
lions cf rare delft, and the famous Dutch 
ligure painter. Jan Stetii. sketched his 
own portrait on a plaque that has b<— 
come one of the most valuable pit^^es of 
pottery in the world. 

The wonderful descriptive scenes of the 
Dutch genre painter. Wouverman. are as 
eften found on delft plaques as on the 
more durable canvas, and are equally ef- 
r-.tive. Plaques attributed to Teniers arc 
also found in collections in Holland: but 
as ".hese are not signed, and the suppo- 
siiir!) Ib hased on a certain resemblance 
in style, they are less valuable than the 
authentic plaques sit'ned by John Decker, 
in 169K, one of which is ihe remarkable 
bust of St. Peter In low relief. Zueman's 
name has, so far, been discovered on but 
one plaque, and that a reinforced es- 
cuteheoned plate in blue and violet and 
bright enamels. 

The attempt to Identify genuine old 
d Ift by any one hall-mark would be as 
alaurd as to group the Dutch nobility un- 
d' r cne escutcheon. Every delft potter 
stamped his ware according to his own 
taste. Often one hall-mark would descend 
from father to S'n, and be the distinctive 
sign of one pottery for generations, while 
frequently a change in the ownership of 
a pottery would change the mark cf tho 
ware as well. 

Names, initials, signboards and emblems 
were all used to sign this ware, and these 
various signatures and deslgnatu ns were 
all rf>glMitered at the Hotel de Ville. The 
earliest record ihat can be found in the 
eld town hall at Delft is the stamp of 
lfi:i8. on a bit of blue and white faience 
in Chinese style. 

Although in a great majority of cases 
the names cr initials cf the potters served 
as a hail-mark on old delft, there are 
notable exi.epiions. Dirk Van der Doer 
signed all his rettery for years with a 
rse, until "Rose Delft" became one of 
th-- most popular wares in the market. 
And Justus Brewer, one of the most ex- 
manufacturers on the continent, 
the delft frcm his great factories 
with a tiny hatchet, and specimens of 
"Ha.tchet ware" are often seen in old 
Dutch homesteads on this side of the water. 
The famous Delft mark "MP," which is 


found oa the most beautiful of old blue 
camaleu ware. Is simply a contraction of 
"Met3».l> Pot," metal jwl. The "Do 
Paauw Delft," or, "'Peaccek ware." the 
most magnificent red porcelain ever man- 
ufactured out of China, was marked for 
generations with the plain English letters 
"I. D. M.," and these letters were not at 
c.ny time the initials of the potters c- of 
their f::mili«-s.

lightness. In beauty and enamel, they 
c'lualed the import. -d ware, besides being 
able to sell at a much Icwer rate. 

The old delft wm>: famous for the Iwautv 
ef its glaze and Its durability. The clay 
u.-^ed in its manufacture was ImporteJi 
from Bruyellc. where all th-f best French 
potteries weie located. Tho exquisite glaze 
was the result of the largo amount cf tin 
used by the Delft ixitteries to mix with the 
clay. The tin w;;» brought by Dutch sail- 
ors from Englan<i. 

riie general impression that all delft. 
new or old, was invariably >iecorated 
with designs hi blue under a bluish glaze, 
is a great mistake. The very oldest delft. 
that date^s back to lti47. is sure 10 be found 
exclusively in blue- and whltc\ for the 
simple reason that for a long time the 
only Chinese p-rc.laiii taken to Europe 
chanced to be \<\ thai combination, and 
as Delft potters were at first onlv Imi- 
tators they naturaJly a4lher«?d strictly to 
the Ori'-ntal models of the lime. 

lint later 0.1 all kinds cf ware found 
tlietr way to Hollaixl, and were sjieeililv 
imitated by the clever men of Delft. They 
repixMlneed ix)lychrome cle><'oiratlon with 
great lldellty. The Wi;re was, to b" sur,-. 
of a coarser texture: but In both color 
mid effect the copies were true to the 
mcdels used. In lini" nearlv <-verv form i ler's 
of faience was brought out in the thirty dif- I now 
ferent Delft factories. 

Every description of table service was 
made, and every possible shape of bot- 
Ih-M. Pl«qu««! de<x>nLte<l with beautiful 
pi.i.UlngB and tiles for chimney decoration 
were exported to eve»ry foreign shore, and 
r.l the end of the seventeenth ci-nturv delft 
became the poi/Ular ware of the world. 

By the middle cf the eighteenth century 
sc;arlel and gold, pale blue, and occasional- 
ly green coloring was quite as common In 
the decoration of delft as the more famll- 

seventeenth century confined to the potter- 
ies In Delft. The French factories at 
Rouen made a ware closely resembling 
delft. i.H did th" factories at Flanders and 
Belgium, a.i<l iKJtteries for the manufac- 
ture cf a heavy blue and white' ware were 
established In Amsterdam In 17X" bv Hartog 
and his cowork<r, Brandier. At bvertoon 
In 1",'>4 a factory whs established bv th.' 
totters Van Haeren and Van Pallard, 
which turned out tine examples r.f so- 
ci.lled delft In enameUil labl" war-, birds, 
vases, etc. No mark Is found on this 
ware, and in I'M the factory was bought 
and the- mat -rials transferred to the town 
of Weesp. Specimens ef "We^'sp Delft." 
marked with a "W" c-rosseel with two 
batons and three dots, are still to be 
pkkeel up In Hollanel. but ttiev are rare 
and very costly. 

Probably the most celebrati-d plei-e of 
delft la the world is the "giant plaque" 
In the village of Lekkerkerk. This 
plaque, which stands over eighty feet high, 
is de-.^orated with a jwrtrdt of tho famous 
Dutch giant of the eighteenth century. 

The pretty French story of "Ix- Violin 
Faience. " by Chamfleury, the grout 
French c^elleetor of curios, is foundc>d on 
an actual ot\'urTence in the town of 
Drift in the eighteenth century. A Delft 
potter had so skillfully arranged his de- 
megtic affairs that his four daughters were, 
wccording to the wish of his heart, to 
marry on the same da.v four ceramic iiain'- 
ers, and to celebrate' the event the old 
potter ordered his workmen to make fcur 
Delft vkiliis on which the fotu" bridegrooms 
Were to play their e)wn wedeiing march, 
accompanied hv the brides. for whom 
smallc-r nni.><ical instruments cf th.- same 
wan- hf.d been manufactured. These 
\ i' lins were i-arefuly preserx eel in the |>ot- 
famlly for a long time, and <an be 
ideniilled in diltereiil European col- 
lections of musical Instruments.

Many Cute Fakirs to 
Found Amonjt the Dif- 
ferent Tribes. 


'The mediiMno mon of certain aborigin- 
al tribe« in this country art» amazing jug- 
glers," sail! Dr. W. J. Hoffman, the prov- 
ernment ethnologist, to a Washing'ton 
correeponilem of the Philailelphia Times. 
•*S«ime of the feats of mafrtc they per- 
form are equal to any of those said to be 
executed by the yogis of India, JudpinR 
from travelers' stories, the mosat remark- 
able thmg done by those Oriental fakirs 
IS the making a Hant to grow out of the 
ground. But there are sorcerers among 
our Indians who are able to duplicate this 
trtck. A numbor of them will gather in 
a cin-le closely, with their heads bowod 
togfther, so as to shut out the view from 
witlhout. Presently, after going through 
some monkey busines»s, they separate, and 
lo! there is a century plant growing on 
the prairit' where previously nothing was 
to be seen— a pliant apj>arently of a dozf^n 
years" growth and two or three feet high. 
How is it done? \-ou ask, I haven't the 
slightest notion. 

"On one occasion l.,ewis Cass went to 
Mackinaw, Mioh.. for the purjwse of rep- 
resenting the government in a conferene? 
with the IntHana there. After the official 
ceremonies there was a big meilicine fea'st. 
This latter performance was witnessed bv 
Air. Cass, who took notice incldentallv o"f 
a woman looking on— a visitor like him- 
self. She was a full-blooded Chipewa. antl 
In her hand she had an old anu dried-up 
bag of snakeskln. She spoke English well, 
and, in response to * question, she said 
that the bag contained certain charms 
and articles of magical valut-. Mr. Cass 
laughed at her and she became verv 
angry. She threw the bag upon the 
ground, and, being transfofmetl into a 
snake, it chased the derisive statesman, 
who was obllge<l to take to his heels, A 
minute later the serpent roturned to the 
woman and became a bag again. That is 
the story Mr. Cass tohl: vou mav take it 
for what it is worth. 

■Chrtsitan missionaries have found the 
Iniiian magic a serious obstacle to their 
evangelizing efforts. Sorcery is intimate- 
ly a:«sociated with the aboriginal worship 
and the savages, after astonishing the 
priests with their tricks, laugh at them 
saying. Your religton cant do such 
things.' I happen to know of the case of 
a Jesuit priest who some vears ago went 
to work among the Arapahoes and Chey- 
ennes. west of the Mississippi. He gave 
up the business of saving their souls after 
a while and came away entirely discour- 
aged. They did things which, he declared 
were entirely beyond his understanding. 
The medicine men would go out on the 
bare, sunny prairie, where there was not 
a sprig of vegetation, and, after some 
chanting and various performances, 
would come up out of the ground— quite a 
patch of it. green artd growing. He him- 
.self saw it grow, and there could be no 
doubt about it. 

"The bravest act I have ever known was 
performed by one of these Indian jug- 
glers. A favorite trick of his was one 
tl>at has often been performe<l bv white 
magician.s. It consisterl in pefmittir.g 
himself to be shot at, the hocus-pocus be- 
ing an arrangement by which the bullet 
fell out of the barrel into a cavity in 
the stock of the weapon before the latte 
was dischargetl. Meanwhile he hafl an- 
other bullet concealed in his mouth 
which at the instant of firing he pushed 
outward with his tongue, so as to make 
It api>ear that he had caught the projec- 
tile between his teeth. Now. it hapi)enetl 
that this man had a rival, who was en- 
gaged in the conjuring business in a 
neighboring village. On an occasion when 
the trick was to he performed, the jug- 
gler announcing, as usual, that he was 
ready to be shot at by any one present, 
the rival stepped forward and said he 
would do the shooting. But he demanded 
permission to use his own gun. 

•Natrually the juggler objected, but his 
protest was overruled. It was decided 
that the rival magician might use his own 
weapon. This meant almost sure death 
to the performer, yet he did not blanch. 
To refuse the test would have been per- 
manent disgrace. There was one chance 
of a hundred. perhaps, that the 

white men. tied the Indian up in the 
most elalH>ralo fashion and put him inside 
of a coniiiil wig-wiun iu tlu> mlddh> of .in 
open s|>ju'c. -N'olHvdy olse was permitted 
to tome ru-nr him. .A.s quioklv 41s they had

where tliny would tind their roiut*. One 
ot the white men was !«»<nt to the

of that .sort should b<- tluis pnxstltuttsl. 

•Heloiiglng to a tribe with which 1 hud 
acquaintance was a no-account Indian, 
^eiierally desplse.1 by his fellow rt^lskins, 
who always carrie^l about with him a 
nuHlicine Inig made of an old duck skin. 
On one occasion— .so the story was told to 
me— he Joineil a tishing party. While tiny 
were off on the exi>editloii, several boat 
loads of hostile snvagt\s apiR-ared. They 
trieil to escai)e. but their foes could pad- 
dle faster, and apjwrently the.v had no 
-hance to get away. The pursuers came on 
so swiftly that the pursue*! were de- 
inor"ali2e<l. One of the latter remarke<l tn 
the no-account Indian: "If your duck 
skin Is any goo<l, make medicine with it 
now and make it quick.' In resiKinse the 
owner of the duck skin luig held it in thii 
water, and at once the speed of the l>oat 
inor«\ustsl so much th it the hiintInK pany 
escaiH^I. Seemingly, the spirit of the duck 
operatcxl after the manner of a paddle- 
wheel and pushed the craft along. 

"l was much mystili«>«l on one o<"caslon 
by a trick I saw i>erform(Hl In a big medi- 
cine lotlge. In the course of a long cere- 
moiiiial an Indian took a bag about the 
i*ize of a large handkerchief and maiilpu- 
lattxl it in such a manner ajs to show thai> 
It containetl nothing. Then he danced 
around the lo<lge Flowly, holding the bag 
between his fingers by the uppea- comers. 
Prest*ntly the heads of two snakes ap- 
|)eare*1 from the mouth of the bag. and 
al>out a foot of the length of each snake 
became visible. But it chanced that the 
juggler in his dancing piussed by the open 
door of the lodge, and then 1 understooil 
the fake. The light shining through the 
bag showed that it contained no snakes. 
What had appeare<l from the bag was 
merely tbe stuffenl heads and Iwdies for a 
short length of a couple of rattlers. They 
were made to stick out by pulling taut 
the piece of tape to which the.v were at- 

"A gooil many of these Indian tricks I 
was able to solve. Some of the most re- 
markable ones, which are i>erfectly well 
authenticate*!. I never saw. I knew of a 
juggler who could take ripe retl cherrieis 
out of his mouth at any sea.son of the 
year. One creilible witTie>ss assure.l me 
that he knew the chen-ies were real, be- 
cause he bad eiat««) them. I have made 
quite a busine^ss of exposing such aix)r- 
Iglnal magic, which does a gooti deal of 
l>atTn in various ways, incldentallv an- 
tagonizing the lntix>duction of Chris- 
tian religion among the savage tribes. I 
have done somewhat of the same sort of 
work that was performed by Houdin. who 
was sent by the French government to 
Algiers for the piin)ose of outjuggling the 
Algerian jugglers. By doing so he con- 
vinced the Algerians that their jugglers 
were not divinely inspired. One trick he 
performe.1 was the tiring of bullets which

■ The late Garrick Mallery of the bureau 
of ethnology once told me of 5 - ■ ilng 
quite unaccountable which he w .^sed 
at White Earth in IWi. There wa., pi'es- 
ent a famou.s medicine man. who made a 
bet with the local government agent that 
the latter could not tie hira with rori''S 
in such a manner that he would not be 
able to JUcn^ffe himscli; off-hand. The 
agent, assisted by Mallery and oth'^r 

made splashes of blood on the target. The 
lead bulle-ts ostensibly use<l dropjjed into 
a cavity in the gun stock, pellets of wax 
filled with a re<l liquid being substituted. 
The effect of this trick on the Algerians 
was astonishing. I have produce^l an 
equal effeot by turning water into blood. 
It was very simple. Put a few drops of 
chloride of iron in one glass, and a few 
drops of sulpho-cyandie in another, per- 
mitting them to dry. Then put clear water 
in iHjth glasses. Pour the contents of one 
glass into the oriver, and the resulting 
liquid i.^ i>lood red. Throw it away, of 
course, before anybexly can examine it 

"Another trick of mine ^tis to set sugar 
on fire. My sugar was real sugar mixed 
with chloride of potash. I would get an 
Indian me«licine man to dip a stick into 
water, to see if he could set the sugar 
on fire with water. When he faile<l I took 
my turn: but my stick hail been dimjed 
previously into sulphuric acid, and I 
mt«rely made a pretense of putting it into 
the water. When the* stick touched the 
sugar the crhlori«le of was ig-nited 
t)y the sulphuric acid, and a great bla/.<' 
followed. Many sueh simple chemical ex- 
p*-riments I have |K-rformed f(u- the piir- of asloni.ihing tlu- Indians, iind they

"No, I failed to nots the" item," sai,i

'Was he very hungry wh:n picked up?' 
"Hungry? Why, colonel, when they

.'^aid h?, "isn't a circumstance to a hor- 
I'ble case that I remember in 1S77. Tli.iv 
was a young fellow named Jackson, whei 
went em a trading schooner to the West 
Indies. The ship was wreck?(i. on a 
coral key. and he managed to clim'o 
.'Shore on the edge of the reef. Well. .sir, 
he sat on that coral re-ef for forty-four 
days without a bite to eat. There was 
a spring of fresh water on the reef and he 
Jid not suffer from thirst, but he was, 
very naturally, starving. Orf the even- 
ing of the forty-second day he made up 
his mind to suffer no longer. In his 
pocket was 3 burning glass. On tho reef 
was plenty of wood from the wreck of 
the schooner. He took some wood and 
built a very neat little pyramid of it. 
Then he turned his burning on the 
wood and ihad a loaring fire going. Then 
he drew his long sailor's knife, and with 
one blow chopped off his l.^ft hand. This 
he held over the blaze till it was tho- 
roughly fricasseed. Then it. 

"The young man had a large hand— he 
was one of those generous fellows— and 
was saving and economical with his 
rations. So the h.^^nd lasted him for a 
week, after which he withhstood the 
pangs eif hunger for ten days. Then, 
growing desperate again, he cut ofT his 
right foot and lived on that. Eight days 
went by while he was eating the foot, 
and then, just as he was meditating 
dinirg off an e.'tr, a vessel hove in 
sight. He lives over on the west side 
now, anl the bones of hi« hand and foot,

THE nrLUTn evening HEKALD': PATURDAV, FEBKUARY 15, 1896. 



The alK)ve is the title oC an extivim-ly 
Intert-eting- and realistic war sto- 
ry, written by Rev. Josenji 
F. Flint and i>ublishtHl by the 
Arena rublishing rompany, Boston, 
IMass. : cloth. $1.25: paper, 50 cents. The 
i*tory ia told in the form of a lilary left 
at his death by a veteran who had been 
a captain in the Northern army, and 
•with O.rant at VicksburK and Sherman 
on his march to the sea. Two or three 
of the preat events of the war are told 
in stirring fashion, but the narrative 
deals mainly with the inside life of the 
tJoldier in war time, and its physical 
and moral dimcnlties. A fine love story 
runs throughout, the hei-o having 
pliRhted his troth befare setting out 
for the fix)nt. I'eing wounded in tlei>r-

Harper's for February is very much 
like Harper's for January and Harper's 
for all other months. It contains a de- 
scription of the 'Xew Baltimore." a 
snow shoe sketch by Caspar \V. Whit- 
ney, a story by Hjalmar Hjorth FJoye- 
sen, more of "Joan of Arcs Peraonal 
Recollections." another installment of 
AVilliam Blacks "Brisels." a little of 
"Poultney Bierelow" and the "German 
Struggle for Liberty:" some of "Teildy 
Roi»sevelt as a Historian." an alleged 
farce by John Kendrick Bangs, and the 
usual assortment of side-splittin.g 
sketches in the "Dra.wer." Harper's for 
February is up to the standard. 

"Architects of Fate; or. Steps to Suc- 
cess and Power, ' is the title of a \new 
Avork by Orison Sweet Martlen. just 
from the i>ress of Houghton, Mifflin & 
Co.. Boston. It is a crown Svo of 186 
pages, finely bound in cloth and sells 
for $1.50. It contains in its twenty-six 
brilliant chapters a vast amount of in- 
spiration to character building and 
self culture and pointers toward the at- 
tainment of a full, rich manhootl or 
womanhood, by the most invigorating 
examples of noble achievement. It is 
full of beneficial anecdotes — aneidotes 
that will be of incalculable value to 
young minds and full of interest to old- 
er ones. The book also contains thirty- 
two fine portraits of famous persons. 

"Pushing to the Front: or. Success 
I'nder Difficulties," is another work by 
the same author. It Ps also a crown 
Svo. with twenty-four fine portraits and 
sells at $1..">0. This is a book of inspir- 
ation and help to the youth of America, 
Avho long to be somebody and to do 
s;>methlng in the world, many of whom, 
hedged in as it were by iron walls of 
circumstance feel that they have "nn 
chance in life." Both these books 
should be in every home in the land 
Avhere there are young people, and in- 
deed they would not be as coun- 
selors for those of mature years. The 
books are !=old by all booksellers or sent 
postpaid on receipt of price ($1.50) by

Several months ago The Herald an- 
nounced the publication of part first of 
"Washington, or the Revolution." a 
drama by Ethan Allen, founded, upon 
the historic events of the war for 
American independence. which has 
been published by F. Tennyson Neeby, 
of Chicago and New York. Part first 
covered the events up to the surrender 
of Burgoyne. The second part has just 
been issued and covers the period from 
Vall^^y Forge to Washington's inaugur- 
ation as president of the United States. 
Jt is an interesting and well-writen 

Henry .M. Stanley, in the Febi-uary 
issue of the Century M.igazine. has put 
into ten pages a wundMful amnunt of 
:nformdt;on in an article entitled "The 
Story of the Development of Africa." 
An interesting article of historical gos- 
sip "s "Certain Worthies and Dames of 
0!d Maryland." accompanied by many 
tine" portraits. "The Palmerston Ideal in 
Diplomacy" is a profitable study, by Ed- 
■ward M. Ch.ipman. The most note- 
worthy article of the number is F. 
Marion Crawford's "Pope Leo XIII and 
■His Household." Here is the first series 
of photographic pictures of the inside of 
th? Vatican ever published. The num- 
'ner abounds in the visual stories and 
shorter sketches, and is, on the whole, 
one of unusual interest. 

"The Venezueian Difficulty" and "The 
British Feeling" are two articles that 
open the Februarj- number of the North 
American Review, by Andrew Carnegie 
and Rt. Hon. James Bryce, respectively. 
These two articles contain .some of the 
wi-sest and most thoughtful words that 
have been spoken on this subject, and 
both indicate how great good is almost 
sure to come out of the Imbroglio. Ed- 
ward Atkinson contributes an article on 
t;ie increased productions of gold. Capt. 
H. C. Taylor, Bishop Doane and George 
Persons Lathrop contribute a symposium 
on '"Issues of Peace and War. " Profes- 
sor C. A. Young tells about ths Yerkes 
telescope, Mr. Gladstone's second 
article f>n th^ condition of man in the 
futurd life aj»pears in this number. 

This is I n- ilistic and powerful novel 
of ch.iracicr malysis. the interest center-

A native of .Maliama. she had become a

;s, ai the opLMiing of the story, living in 
Color:ido with her husband, with a vic'w 
to staying tne ravages of the malady. 
Sh^ is a woman of strong intellect, great 
force of character, and domineering tem- 
per, who seeks to ho!d the dread disease 
at hiy by sheer strength of will; and her 
varying moods of hope and despair, her 
unavailing sti uggles, and her final break- 
down are depicted with a marvellous 
realism that makes the story pathetic in 
the extreme. The author is Wilbertinp 
Teters. Cloth. $1.25; paper. 50 cents. The 
Arena Publishing company, Boston. 

The Febi-uary Review of Revicnvs 
gives a character sketch of Joseph 
Chamb? lain, with accomivanying por-

One of the most valuable of the feat- 
ures of the Paving and Municipal Engi- 
neering Magazine is the technical a t- 
swers to the questions of c jrresponjdents. 
The February number is highly interest- 
ing ii this regard. Th:- two articles of 
be.=t interest are "Moveable Bridges in 
European and American Cities," and 
"Brick Paving From Start to Finish." 

The Februazy number of McCIure's 
Magazine contains a continuation of 
what may be called its "Lincolniana." 
There a-e eight >ji-traits of Lir.coln ac- 
com,panying a mos»t interesting contri- 
bution! of biograr-ihical matter. "Thf

is written by Murat Halst^-ad. and an-

The Lee family of Virginia is the sub- 
ject of a series of jtrofusoly illustrated 
articles which will constitute a leading 
feature in Frank Leslie's Popular 
Monthly during the current year. The 
Eobruary number of this magazine, just 
out. contains the initial article of the 
series, entitled "The Ancestors of Gen. 
RCbert B. Lee. and the Times in Whicli 
Th-^y Lived," written Ii.v Mrs. Roger A. 

The Chicago Daily News Almanac and 
Political Register for 1896. more valuable 
if possible than any previous i.ssue, is 
out with the new year. It is a marvel 
how vast an ari-ay of information of 
prime importance to every American citi- 
zen is crowded into its 452 compact pug. s. 
The arguments of all parties on the silver 
(luestion. with several pages of carefully 
ind well arranged statistics on gold and 
silver, is a summar.v of the !> st that can 
be said on the linuni il <iuestion. of 
c.^'pecial value are the articles relating 
to the Venezuela dispute, the Monror> 
iloctrine an<l the bond syndicate. We 
know <if no other publication which cov- 
eis so well and so completely the whole 
field of American politics. 

t ( current events and .scientific items and 
the enlargement and extended .scope; of 
\.\H editorial department. The character 
of the Companion is, and will be. un- 
changed. Three igenerations of young 
people have appr^ned it. Three genera- 
tions of American parents have learned 
to trust it. Its ability to entertain its 
rs'iders of all ages will be maintained 
. nd promoted by the same enterprise and 
tiioughtful care that have governed its 
column^ during the many years in which 
"t has sought the confidence and the 

favor of the public 

Among the notable articles in the Ar- 
gonaut for Feb. 10 are: 'Knights of the 
Road: Some Experiences With Bandits 
in Mexico;"" "A Husband's Vengeance: 
How a Crafty Frenchman Punished an 
Erring Wife; " 'The History of Punch," 
an anecdotic review of the famous Eng- 
lish comic paper: and "Grawnt is Too 
Old," a letter setting forth the extraor- 
dinary ignorance of the English aris- 
tocracy regarding American affairs, 
apropos of the recent war scare. 

j I;ntic which will attract i)erhaps the 
widest attention is an able paper, en- 
tit!ed "Tile Presidency and Mr. Reed." 
It is a thoughtful pre.sentation of the 
requirements of thef presidential office and 
a discussion of Mr. Read's fitness for it. 
It is the first of a promised series upon 
the is.sues and some of the personalities 
of the forthcoiming campaign. Another 
feature of importance in this issue is 
"Glasses." a complete story, by Henry 
James. The central :d?a of this story is 
most unique, and affoi-ds Mr. James an 
unusual opiportunity to exercise his tal- 
ents as a story-teller. 


The Youth's Companion begins the Xew 

Year with several noteworthy changes. 

which include the use of larger-faced 

tyiie. the addition of departments devoted 

Scribner's Magazine for February 
might be called a midwinter outdoor 
r.umber. as it contains an unusual 
number of articles of life and adven- 
ture in the open air. First among these 
is the leading article of the number on 
the "Cotodado Health Plateau," by 
Lewis Morris Iddings, which is a de- 
lightful social study by a man who has 
traveled in many regions of the world, 
and who knows the region around 
Colorado Springs thoroughly, having 
spent a number of wintei-s there. (.)f a 
very different description is the brief 
account of "Hunting the Musk-Ox with 
the Dog Ribs." l)y Frank Uus.sell, a 
skillful naturalist, who made a reniark- 
al'le journey with onl.v Intlian ( oin- 
paions into the barren lands of North- 
\> Canada. This is one of the most 
modest and y«"t exciting narratives of 
hunting .nIvc ntun; that has appeared 
for a h>ng time. The illustrations in this 
number air of unusual beauty.

.nins. in the -March Ladies' Home Jour- 
nal, his articles on George Washington, 
which are expected to create considerable 
discussion. Gen. Greely has read over 
200 of Washington's private letters, and 
he wiit.s in a frank, unbiassed way of 
the personal side of AVashington. His 
first article will deal wiili the loves and 
-ourttihir'?;) of Washington and his final 
marriage to Ihe Widow Custis. Gen 
Grrely's articles :iret not likely to confirm 
thd y3timate of thoso w ho regard Wash- 
ington in an ideal way. But they are 
truthful and admirably portray the man 
as be .was— in reality. 

The contribution in the February At- 

Godey's Magazine for February ap- 
pears in a beautiful and original cover 
by F. C. Ransom— a quaint Japanese 
conception for St. Valentine's day. 
Most striking among the contents, is a 
profusely illustrated article on "The 
Famous Museum Freaks." Cleveland 
Moffat tells some of the richest stories 
about the late Eugene Field, 
and among the interesting 

articles are "Studio Life in 
Paris." "What the Bicycle Does For the 
Muscles," and a description of how the 
deaf .are taught speech and speech- 
reading. In the series on "Music in 
America," which is a distinctive amd 
successful feature of Godey's, Rupert 
Hughes writes entertainiaigly on the 
subject of "Cantatas," and discusses 
G. W. Chadwicks work,s. Under the 
head of "Talks by Successful Women" 
appears an interview ^vith Mrs. Dun- 
lap Hopkins, who ha.s accomplished so 
much for women in New Y^ork and else-

I live a quiet sort of life with nothing to 

Without a care to trouble, and I'm not the 

man to fret; 
But, like the ghost of Hamlet. "I could a 

tale unfold." 
When my wife is in a temper and the baby 

lias a cold. 

Now. I've the sweetest baby, and the kind- 
est loving wife. 

With a temper like perfection— she's as 
dear to me as life; 

But she would not be human if she didn't 
sometimes scold. 

Or show just a little anger when the baby 
has a cold. 

So when she comes a-bumping and a- 

thumping round my bed. 
And pokes me in the shoulder, and then 

whacks me o'er the head. 
I feel certain she's not fooling, though 

sleeps hates ic lose its hold: 
It is useless to sham slumber when tiie 

baby has a cold. 

Then, if you could but watch me. you 

would think my actions strange, 
As I hustle from the covers, quickly light 

the kitchen range. 
Set the teakettle to boiling, for the catnip 

quick I run. 
Scamper barefoot round the kitchen, with 

Mosaic garments on. 

For the floor is just at zero, and 'tis mid- 
night by the clock. 

And had Moses struck this climate he'd 
have donned a warmer frock; 

If human nature is the same as 'twas in 
days of old. 

Were his Wife not in a temper, or his baby 
sick with cold. 

I am sort of slow and cumb'rous, and I 

do not claim much speed. 
And hold none of the records of which you 

dail.v read; 
I'.ut I canter round the bedroom like a 

iroly round a loop. 
When my wife is in a temper and the 

I'ahy has the croup.

The Meeting of the Federated 

Trades Assembly Held 

Last Night. 

Various Measures Before

Interests Approved. 

The Movement For Erecting 

a County Hospital Was 

Strongly Endorsed.

tiun went Into exofiitivo .sessian. 

The regular meetiivg of the Federated 
Trades assembly was held last evening' in 
Cdrj>enters hall, a largre number of dele- 
arites being present. President C. "M. 
ThL>nias was in the ch.iir, Robert Halre 
acting as secretary, and F. A. Schulte 
ufflciating as sergeant-at-arms. 

Thf first business claiming the atten- 
tion of thei assembly was the reception 
and enrollment of delegates from Musi- 
cians union No. 6516, Messrs. C. A. Gre- 
gory. W. \V. Huntley and C. J. Wick- 
strom, and A. Schaible and Peter Weiss 
from the Superior Trades and Labor as- 

The reports from the local unions were 
to the effect that conditi^ms are from fair 
to gLiod. and that nearly all members 
have worit. The notable excejnions -were 
the coopers, whjse representative re- 
jxirted that his union was going from 
bad to worse, and the plasterers, the 
delegate from whose union reported in
